So I'm curious about the paper plate thing. I recently bought some paper plates (which I hate and abhor, but at least they're better than the plastic or heaven forbid! the styrofoam... story coming up in a post in the works).

The interesting thing is that the package specifically said they could be put in home composters! So we dumped them in there after the party. When you do this with paper plates, do you rip them up first or just dump them in whole?

If I had a huge composter I could dump them in whole but with a tiered system and worms it seems like smaller is better, so I put them through the shredder first. They disappear pretty quick.
