Can You Compost Toothpicks?

Toothpick Compost

Yes, toothpicks can be used as compost material. Wooden toothpicks would be considered brown compost matter (source of carbon). Do not use toothpicks made from synthetic materials.

This is an optional step but you can speed up the composting process by breaking the toothpicks into smaller pieces.
