    Are there any plans out there for composting with the dryer vent.

    I believe that if you tried composting in your dryer vent that it would become plugged up.

    Do you want to use the waste heat from your dryer to heat your compost? It is my understanding that composting generates heat, without any outside help (aside from organic material adn water).

    If you're talking about adding the lint to your compost- there is so much polyester out there now that doesn't break down - its everywhere!
