It is generally not recommended to add meat to a home composting bin.
Meat can attract pests and animals and may produce an unpleasant smell as it decomposes.
In addition, meat can harbor bacteria and other pathogens that can be harmful to humans if they come into contact with the compost.
If you have leftover meat that you want to dispose of, it is generally better to wrap it in a plastic bag and throw it in the trash, rather than adding it to a home composting bin.
If you do choose to add meat to your compost, be sure to mix it with a large amount of other types of organic matter, such as leaves and grass clippings, to help neutralize the smell and reduce the risk of attracting pests and animals.
