Adding bacon to a residential compost bin or pile is not recommended.

The heat generated by these systems is not sufficient to break down meat, bones, oils and fats.

Even a small amount of bacon can attract pests and animals, and the smell may be unpleasant.

It's best to dispose of bacon in the regular trash rather than in a home composting system.
