Compostable Food Waste?

The most basic is fruit and vegetable peelings and cuttings saved for your compost bin.

What you can compost this way is outlined here from Sustainable Gardening Australia.

But by using a Bokashi type fermentation system, prepared foods, meat, dairy, egg, coffee & tissues can also be turned into compost.

This explanation is from the Bokashi Company, but is a clear description of how fermentation composting works, and what you can compost using this technique. You can make a similar sealed lid fermenter / composter, or buy another commercial bin.
