Pears are classed as “greens” in composting terms: if you've got a LOT of pears or other “greens”, add alongside “browns” (like dried leaves or cardboard) to keep the compost heap balanced.

Adding “browns” to the mix will help to keep the compost heap aerated and reduce the smell of the decomposing material.
