Compostable packaging may not break down properly if the compost is too dry or if it is not turned regularly.

It is also important to note that not all compostable packaging materials are created equal.

Some materials may break down more quickly than others, and some may not break down at all in a home composting bin.

Generally these materials are not for home composting bins, so leave them out.
