Recycle your paper waste by composting with worms.

Written by Matthew on April 3rd, 2013

If you have lots of paper trash, look no further than the lowly worm to recycle it. Worms will consume office paper, cardboard, newspaper, paper plates, paper towels and on it goes. Just throw them into your worm bin and they will eat it right up.

When the worms are finished you will have worm castings. Castings can be used to grow new paper, or more practically any plant, fruit or vegetable you choose.

    Thank you for this great reminder about waste paper and worms. All to often, we forget that worms will eat all the paper that can’t be recycled in our curbside recycling bin. Instead of sending it to the landfill, we can feed our worms!
