Grocery Bags

I have heard of people vermicomposting junk mail, newspaper, egg carton, drink trays, office paper and paper towels but never have I heard anybody mention paper grocery bags. Does anybody add paper grocery bags to their vermicomposting operations?

Yes I know I could purchase $1 bags made in China embeded with chrominum, lead and melamine and reuse them weekly thus putting this weeks fresh bunch of grapes into the same bag last weeks chicken package leaked into. I prefer paper and plastic and reuse each a few times in my home.

RE: Grocery Bags

I use brown paper bags by throwing my wet kitchen waste into them. Then they sit in a bucket for a few weeks. The whole bag of food, rolled like a burrito, goes into the bin and goes away! Pete
