    Good things to compost include vegetable peelings, fruit waste, teabags, coffee grounds, eggshells, plant prunings, grass cuttings, and fallen leaves. These are fast to break down and provide important nitrogen as well as moisture.

    Certain things should never be placed in your bin. No meat, fish, or dairy products. No diseased plants, and definitely no dog poo or cat litter, or babies’ nappies. Also avoid composting perennial weeds (such as dandelions and thistle) or weeds with seed heads. Nonbiodegradable materials

    I agree with the above. I have not heard that you can't put cooked food in compost. I certainly do!

    Yes, keep grease and oils out. No meat either. Unless you like attracting rodents.
