If you have a 4 X 4 compost bin you can add anything vegetable. I add the chicken cleanings, grass clippings, horse or other animal manure I can get, peat moss, and a bag or two of top soil. If you have neighbors who have bagged leaves and they don't use pesticides perhaps you can get those. Now I've read that shredded newspaper is okay but I'm not completely sure. I've read that inks are now soy based without lead, but I just don't know.
