    Unless you build your compost with organic remains of organic fruits/vegetables/and other compostable items, you will introduce chemicals to your compost. It's a no-brainer. Non-organic fruits and veggies have most likely been treated with pesticides. If you eat them, you have consumed the pesticides, and the "left overs" go into your compost pile. However, keep in mind, never turn down a fruit or veggie even if "treated" over a hamburger since it will be less toxic. Just a fact.

    I don't see it as a big deal; others might.
