Dairy products are not a good idea to add at all.
No poo from dogs, cats or humans.
No glass, metal, or plastic (unless it is corn based plastic that will break down in water).
Most say do not put meat or bones in either.
what I put all that in there and the farm camode is a worm bin with a seat, what!!! oh yes and it meets health department regs.........

one of my customers has a tree worm bin to dump the cat waste and litter(grain based) from 30 cats.....

glass metal and plastic is easily cleaned with standard tools like a screener for the casts, or just use a tea bag and wash the casts off the other stuff for ease

Cow dung! WOO HOO! Got a big dairy farm up the street... thats my thinking anyways, and then move on to the horse farms possibly? How do the worms do with shavings? Grass clippings from the MILLIONS of lawn care companies that are dieing for a place to put them, I know I was, and the list goes on and on and on and on and on...

DISCLAIMER! I may be wrong on a few of these, just my thoughts.
Be careful with grass clippings they will have pesticides in them most likely, especially this time of year. It could wipe them all out
some of the cides even make it through the composting cycle

Have you considered glueing melamine sheet panels (formica, wilsonart, pionite) to your plywood?
