Can I Compost Cheese?

(From the Dairy products category | No comments yet - start the conversation)

cheeseIt’s best not to compost cheese – or any other dairy products.

While it will rot down, rats or other undesirable animals may be attracted to your compost heap in the meantime.

You could add it but it’s not going to add a lot of bulk to your heap and in our opinion, the risk isn’t worth the reward.

Don’t forget though that hard rinds – like the end of parmesan wedges – can be added to risottos or soups — a good way to use them up rather than throwing them away.
