I use the rolling unit to compost everything, including meat/fat.

I'v always been told NOT to add meat/fat or manure from carnivorous beasties.  I see what my dogs poop does to the grass if it is not promptly removed.

I try to do 2/3 to 3/4 brown material (leaf mould, shredded newspaper, woody bits to 1/3 to 1/4 green material (grass clippings, kitchen waste etc)

also avoid any thing with seed heads, unless you make a hot compost by turning it to aerate and keep moist, but not soggy.

You can contact your township if they come around in the fall and pick up leaf piles at the curb.  They will often give leaf mould free or very cheap.  I also have neighbors save me their bagged grass clippings, and have 2 garbage cans and shovel and rake in the truck in fall.  When I see someone that has a SHREDDED leaf pile that they picked up with a shredder vac gizzies. Saves alot of time and gas shredding them with the mower!

To clearly see what has not focus, one must alter the lens of ones perception.

When I said "everything" I meant "everything from the kitchen".  Dog/cat poo can be composted, but it should happen on its own, in a separate container, and the resulting compost shouldn't be used on food crops.

The admonishments to avoid fat/meat is mostly because it can attract animals (rats, coyotes), but as I mentioned I have a completely closed composter that animals can't enter (even rats) that I use for this purpose.  Everything breaks down nicely given enough time, with the exception of larger bones.
