Cigarette butts are made of synthetic materials that do not break down in the composting process, and they can contaminate your compost with non-biodegradable waste.

Additionally, cigarette butts can release chemicals and other toxins into the soil, which can be harmful to plants and animals.

Instead of composting cigarette butts, you should dispose of them in a trash can.

If you want to compost organic material, it's best to stick to fruits and vegetables, leaves and yard trimmings, and other natural materials.
