I have always added eggshells to the compost. A friend said this site said NO. I get the part about no meat, etc, although I would think that ‘wild’ soil would have these things. Our local co-operative extention service just says dry out the eggshells so that they can be crumbled.

Kathleen, I did not see where Tricia talks about not using eggshells. You can use them, but I would advise crushing them up so they are in smaller pieces, which will breakdown faster. You are right no meat or dairy and no animal waste (like dog or cat).
