It is not recommended to put a bag into a home composting bin.

Most plastic bags are not biodegradable and will not break down in a home composting system.

In addition, plastic bags can cause problems in a compost bin because they can clog the air and water channels that are essential for the decomposition process.

It's best to avoid adding plastic bags to your compost bin and instead recycle them or dispose of them in your regular trash.

If you want to add a bag to your compost bin, make sure to use a biodegradable bag that is specifically designed for composting.
