Citrus peel always used to be abit controversial in the composting world 'it won't break down very quickly', 'the compost will become acidic', etc. However the view on it now is it's fine, so don't worry about adding it to your compost heap. Like everything in life - its about variety and not too much of any one thing, stick to that and your compost should be fine! Yes, sawdust and wood shavings from untreated wood is fine, again just a little at a time and make sure its mixed with lots of other stuff.
