While it is generally not advised to add fats to a home composting bin, because fats, oils, and grease can attract pests and animals and may create an unpleasant odor if not properly managed.

It is also worth noting that some local regulations may have specific guidelines or restrictions on what can be added to a home composting bin.

For example, some areas may prohibit the addition of certain animal products, including fats and oils, to home composting systems.

It is always a good idea to check with your local waste management agency or composting program to determine the specific guidelines and regulations in your area.
