    Our Atomic reactor was built in the early 60's and soon after was decommissioned. The reactor building remains, as well as the core which was encased in concrete. Somewhere around 2080, it will have finally "decayed" enough to totally dismantle the facility. A banana peel taking longer than a year to decay is relative. Just sayin'.

    I don't think Mr. Remy thought his OP completely through.

    The longest amount of time that it takes a banana peel to decay that I could find was 3 to 4 weeks, not a year or two. I compost everything and never find banana peels remaning when I flip the bin. The only thing that really does take a long time is smashed egg shells which they recommend for composting. The fastest to decompose is watermelon rinds. I think they are gone before they hit the pile.
