I learned how to compost through the Cornell extension learning (I was SO bummed that I couldn't take their course to become a master composter since I was graduating and moving!
) and they said not to put any dairy or meat into the compost, so I feed that to the dog, and if he won't eat it (not usually a problem, it's the healthy stuff he won't eat, yk
) it goes in the trash.
I have to say though that I'm not that surprised you can compost dead chickens and what not, but I don't really understand the logic (I know, I make NO sense!
)....maybe it's because they are not processed like food scraps?
