    Can I Compost My Coffee Filters?

    After my mom makes coffee for herself in the morning, I use the single cup water heater to make a cup of tea.  I know there’s a coffee filter with coffee grounds in there that will make my tea taste bitter if I leave it, so I take it out, and there is always the morning conundrum: Trash or Compost?  

    The odd part about this, is that I will throw out the coffee grounds AND coffee filter, without giving it another thought.  So I thought that with this article, I can educate myself a bit about composting.

    According to the EPA, the following items are compost-able:

    • Animal manure
    • Cardboard rolls
    • Clean paper
    • Coffee grounds and filters
    • Cotton rags
    • Dryer and vacuum cleaner lint
    • Eggshells (NOT what’s inside)
    • Fireplace ashes
    • Fruits and vegetables
    • Grass clippings
    • Hair and fur
    • Hay and straw
    • Houseplants
    • Leaves
    • Nut shells
    • Sawdust
    • Shredded newspaper
    • Tea bags
    • Wood chips
    • Wool rags
    • Yard trimmings

    What else?  There is a whole list of things, here that I bet you didn’t know could be composted.

    So, the answer to my earlier question: YES, compost the coffee filter.  It also did not take that much effort to find out this information.  I could have save approximately 3 coffee filters filled with grounds from the trash if I just looked it up before.
