I don't know whether any of you out there compost your waste at all, but I recently came across this list of 'unlikely' kitchen items that can actually be composted:

   1. Coffee grounds and filters
   2. Tea bags
   3. Used paper napkins
   4. Pizza boxes, ripped into smaller pieces
   5. Paper bags, either ripped or balled up
   6. The crumbs you sweep off of the counters and floors
   7. Plain cooked pasta
   8. Plain cooked rice
   9. Stale bread
  10. Paper towel rolls
  11. Stale saltine crackers
  12. Stale cereal
  13. Used paper plates (as long as they don't have a waxy coating)
  14. Cellophane bags (be sure it's really Cellophane and not just clear plastic—there's a difference.)
  15. Nut shells (except for walnut shells, which can be toxic to plants)
  16. Old herbs and spices
  17. Stale pretzels
  18. Pizza crusts
  19. Cereal boxes (tear them into smaller pieces first)
  20. Wine corks
  21. Moldy cheese
  22. Melted ice cream
  23. Old jelly, jam, or preserves
  24. Stale beer and wine
  25. Paper egg cartons
  26. Toothpicks
  27. Bamboo skewers
  28. Paper cupcake or muffin cups

Hope this helps!
