Many of us have compost bins in the backyard where we layer raked leaves, grass clippings and kitchen waste to break down into beneficial mulch. Don’t neglect seasonal items for your bin, too, during the holidays. Items like evergreen branches, rotting pumpkins and tabletop Indian corn arrangements can be added to a compost bin after the festivities are over. Just be sure to remove non-biodegradable items like ribbon, rubber bands and twist-ties before tossing into the bin.
