Can You Compost Nail Clippings?

Nail Clippings

Yes, nail clippings can be added to compost heaps. They won’t add a lot of bulk to the compost heaps but every little piece helps! Nail clippings would be considered green compost ingredients (source of nitrogen).

Avoid using finger or toe nail clippings that have been polished. You should also avoid using fake nails like acrylic nails.
