Here’s a mostly excellent video… the core idea is right on: Grind up your food waste to encourage rapid decomposition.
I’m a little lost on the pro- garbage disposal talk, though.
I’ve seen only a few write-ups on this, and they’ve all been from Insinkerator… conflict of interest, perhaps?
Convert organic materials into compost in your own yard, or flush them down the drain to combine with nasty chemicals, heavy metals, motor oil, medication, and everything else that washes into the sewers.
Even with an infrastructure set up to compost sewage sludge (which isn’t always the case- it’s often incinerated!), the end product contains a lot of crap.
Keep your organic materials at home.
Anyway, the dude explains how he puts all his organic materials in his compost bin, including cat litter. I hope more people take his lead… the proliferating myths about the things you can’t compost (meat, dairy, oil, etc) are ridiculous.
I hope this dude covers his deposits each day… I didn’t see him throw in any brown materials on top of the food scrap blend.
To be clear, shredding food scraps is not required. It speeds up the process a bit, and will heighten the temperatures of the compost pile- however, neither of these things are mandatory to get good compost.
That’s what’s so great about composting- just put the stuff in the pile and let it do what it does. Pay attention to airflow, moisture, mixture and volume and you’re good to go!
