If it is wet enough, the cardboard will break down, unless you use the coloured shiny sort. If you do not have a lot of compostable material, a worm bin may be a better option than a large compost bin. If you use newspaper strips instead of cardboard, it would be easier. You only need it to stop all green stuff from going slimy. for instance, if you only have grass cuttings, it ends up as a slimy mess. Mixing ripped up paper in there keeps air spaces in and it doesn't go slimy.
