Can I out any kind of food scraps in my compost pile?

    No, you should not compost meat or meat waste (e.g. bones, fat, gristle, skin, etc.), fish or fish waste, dairy products, or grease and oils of any kind.  These wastes imbalance the nutrient-rich structure of other waste and tend to break down slowly.  They also attract rodents and maggots.

    You will want to stick to just organics such as vegetables. Coffee grounds and egg shells also can be composted as can some types of pasta. However, you will want to avoid meats as they will rot and attract unwanted pests and varmints.

    The compost soil you create will be rich in nutrients and can be used on your garden and flower beds.
