    Wood ash + hot animal fat = soap. It's a self-cleaning process. No lye. :)

    Our township sells these "digesters" : https://www.greencone.ca/

    We dump everything in from the kitchen and the cat's litter box. It's fully enclosed so there's no smell, except when opening the lid of course. It's highly recommended to hold your breath and stand up wind!! It slows down in winter so ours is right full now; we might put a second one in or use a traditional composter for vegetable scraps to keep them out of the green cone.

    That is a nice design, but not a composter, thus it can accept meat by-products.
