    I disagree with nearly everything on the no list and I have been composting for years. Meat, dairy, seafood, all oils, including bacon grease, torn up cardboard, crushed bones and all sorts of various compostable packing and tissuesgo in mine. My compost is full of worms and is done fast. Toss it in, give it a turn once in a while and kabaam! you have garden gold:)

    We don't doubt that those things wouldn't make great compost, however most of the things in the no section and that you mentioned are pest magnets (meat, dairy, oils, etc.) and that's the main reason they aren't generally composted in the outdoors. However cardboard can most certainly be composted and we use it to sheet mulch all of our garden beds! Thanks for your input though!

    Agree with comments stating that the cardboard and paper are wrong. They are great for building a diverse compost
