Is it OK to add lemon peels to compost?

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and composting and I have a few questions. I want to find out if you can add lemon, orange and mandarin peels to the compost.We are using lots of lemons, sometimes 4-5/day ,mandarins and oranges.

I have a plastic compost bin and I put in it only grass, leaves, raw vegetable, egg shell, coffee grounds. I did not put anything cooked food. Should I ?

How long it takes to be ready to use?

Thanks,

Figara
