Chewing gum is made of synthetic materials that do not break down in the composting process, and it can contaminate your compost with non-biodegradable waste.

Additionally, chewing gum can attract pests and rodents to your compost bin, so it's best to avoid adding it to your compost.

Instead of composting chewing gum, you should dispose of it in a trash can.
