Can onion go in bokashi?Updated 4 months ago

Yes, onion scraps can go into a Bokashi bin. 

While onions are compostable and can be fermented in the Bokashi process, it's important to note that they have a strong smell and high sulfur content which might not be completely eliminated during the fermentation process. 

This means that when the pre-compost is buried or added to soil, there might still be a noticeable onion scent. Additionally, large quantities of onions should be mixed with other organic waste to maintain a balanced fermentation environment in the Bokashi bin.
