Those bacteria are what you want to break down the compost.
Adding chlorine to house air is a bad idea.
Keep the container sealed.
I put coffee grinds, spent flowers, pistachio shells, and leaves in mine.
Nothing smells. The actual compost is 99% yard waste.
You mentioned pulling weeds and not composting them.
That does not seem logical. If you give it enough time the
seeds won't survive.
or use worms and let them take care of it.
they do much better in the ground where
temperatures are moderated the location can
be less visible to "the management".
most scraps can simply be buried, if done
deeply enough there's no smell or problem
with vermin/bugs. leaves are also broken
down more quickly if buried with some dirt
mixed in instead of just left in a pile on
for bones it's much better if you can
grind them (if you don't trust your meat
source you may want to cook them well
first) before composting, but in the end
the earth's critters will take care of
them one way or another.
i worm compost a great deal and study
decomposition techniques. :) more fun
than a mere human should ever be allowed...
