I happen to have a lot of white used paper (with black ink on it, either from a printer or a pen), and also a very wet compost bin (I guess it's because my soil is heavy clay and the drainage is quite poor).
My thought was: I buy a paper shredder, I shred the paper that I have/produce and use it to make my compost pile dryer, by adding it little by little.
A few question arise, though:
Is it safe (in terms of soil/plant health) to compost white used paper with ink on it?
Will this actually help drying the compost?
How small should the shredded strips be, and how long will they take to be composted?
