So as far as my research goes I really can just throw scraps off food in there :)
I wanted to be sure first though. Now I just have to figure out a way to keep them in the house without smelling because, unfortunately, the yard waste (green) bin can’t take compostable bags. LA’s composting system must not have caught up to the times yet but that was from a 2008 article.
I have yet to find the contact that I can ask to let me know otherwise.
