I throw mine onto the garden I must admit. I don't know whether it does any good, but doesn't seem to do any harm. Tea bags I soak in Jeyes fluid and scatter round to deter cats.
thank you allotment,
going to take a look now tt
Hi Allotment73, I have just read your "about me" and having just got my allotment I can totally agree with you. My dad (85 yr old!) has two plots plus his own back garden which is the size of an allotment anyway and he virtually lives down there!
Welcome to GoY!
I'm not posh enough to have a coffee maker LOL so I don't have coffee grounds, but I do get through loads of tea bags. I put them in the comp bin, but I find that the actual bags take yonks to rot away and tend to hang around in the resulting compo. So I tear them up to let the contents out - not so bad then. I'd really like a coffee maker.............. ;-)

Sid, at last, somebody else who cuts up the tea bags before they compost them ! I thought it was just me who did that and cuts citrus peel too as rots faster.
Teabag cutters united! lol I wonder what they make those bags out of....they're indestructable arn't they!
