Line Compost Bucket with Newspaper

I have started a compost pile. Since it is far from the house, I have an ice cream bucket that I use for my daily scraps. To keep it from getting so messy when I empty it, I line it with newspapers or paper ads from the mail. The paper absorbs the liquids and everything comes out of the bucket when it is emptied.

This seems like such a good idea. I'm going to try it immediately. Nothing is messier than kitchen compost that won't come out of the pail! Thanks for the tip.

I like this idea and want to add to it. I keep a coffee can with its plastic top in the kitchen and dump egg shells, coffee grounds, the peelings from carrots, celery, potatoes and bananas in it. When it's full, I empty it in the compost bin.
