The containers where we throw kitchen waste for composting always attract flies. Is there a way to keep them away without damaging the composting process?

Thanks for answering the question. I live in an apartment and do not have the scope of getting straw, wood chips or peanut hulls. I have only one container which is kept on the balcony behind. Can I add newspaper shreds to the pile?
I remember reading somewhere that the ink used in newspaper printing can be harmful to the compost. I don't know whether it is correct...
Shredded newspaper would be great! Just don't use the color supplements as they may contain chemicals that aren't good for plants. Try to keep the balance of green & brown about even. If the balance is good, your compost won't stink or attract fl
