Can I compost Mushrooms

Compostable: Yes

Category: Green

Mushroom scraps and leftover stalks from the kitchen and the mushrooms you might find growing in your garden can all be put in your composter.

Mushrooms can easily grow on your compost, the spores are released from underneath the mushroom cup.  The way to avoid this is to make sure that there is sufficient heat in your composter to kill off any mushroom spores.
