Why is my food waste and the bags not composted within 45 days?

 

In a commercial composting plants the bags will normally be composted within 1 to two weeks. Most home composters will not reach the desired temperatures of 60-70 deg C, where the composting process is most efficient. You will see that your bag is degrading at the same speed as your food waste. The "normal" turnover time for a home composter is 6-12 months. You will see that the bags are gone when the waste has been turned into compost.
