What can I put in it?
All types of food scraps can be added. Avoid putting Oils and fats, bread products, rice and pasta, sauces, dairy products, nuts, fish and meat, or bones or hard waste like shells of Coconut, Walnut, etc. and Mango core, Corns, etc. These will make the compost stink and attract pests. We recommend cutting up scraps into smaller pieces to allow for quicker fermentation. Make sure proteins such as meat and fish are thoroughly sprayed with accelerator. (no bones or excessive liquids).
