Re: composting newsprint

Makes a wonderful mulch. If you were doing 100's of thousands of tons then you would want to keep track of the build up of minerals and chemical compounds but not on a small scale.

I am curious if anyone has had experience with composting newsprint. Last fall I began to add it to my regular compost bin with apparently good results. The earth worms were definitely drawn to it. I only used those sections which had no/minimum color and did not use anything which was glossy or "stiff". Our local newspaper is printed using a soy based ink. Any comments? Hank Zumach
