Can You Compost Business Cards?

Yes, like most paper products, your stack of business cards can be dumped into the compost bin or compost pile. Business cards made from glossy or coated paper materials, however, should not be used as composting ingredients. It would be a better option to recycle those materials.

Shred the business cards into smaller pieces if you want to speed up the composting process. Business cards would be considered a brown composting material (source of carbon).
