Can You Compost Latex Gloves?

Yes, if the gloves are made of natural latex then they can be used in compost heaps. Natural latex is biodegradable and would be considered a brown compost ingredient (source of carbon).

While natural latex gloves can be used in compost heaps, one should keep in mind that they can take a long time to breakdown so they aren’t recommended for people who maintain basic compost heaps at home.
