It is generally not recommended to add mustard to a home composting bin.

Mustard is typically made with a mixture of mustard seeds, vinegar, and other ingredients, and it may not break down easily in the compost pile.

In addition, mustard can contain artificial preservatives and other chemicals that may not be safe for plants.

If you have leftover mustard that you want to dispose of, it is generally better to throw it in the trash, rather than adding it to a home composting bin.
