Is it ok to throw moss that i have scraped off the driveway in the compost bin?
Also I was thinking of throwing in the gunk that gathers in the eavechutes.

Fiachra,
You should not have gunk gathering in the eave chutes if there is a proper flow along them and you do even basic maintenance in leaf removal etc.. Having said that, such stuff is [usually] organic and safe. I cleaned many a chute in my time [in Ireland] and it mainly consisted of well-rooted grass and 'soil'. Go for it.
