Can You Compost Old Spices & Herbs?

Old Spices Compost

Do you have stacks of old bottles and tins that contain stale spice powder? The good news is that instead of throwing them away, you can pour the old spices in the compost pile. Spices would be considered green compost ingredients (source of nitrogen).

Old spices and herbs have a tendency to clump together when they haven’t been touched for a while. Make sure you break down any spice clumps before they are mixed into the compost heap.
