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.

I always wanted to compost so a kitchen composter was easiest to start with but expensive. I noticed our kitty litter container (hard plastic) was a purrrfect size and has a lid and handle. It fits under the sink and has been working great.

I recently picked up an ice bucket at a garage sale (50 cents!) and now use it on my kitchen counter for my food scraps. It is attractive and well insulated to provide a strong, sealed bucket and yet lightweight. Perfect to hold food scraps until I add them to my compost pile!

Composting is always great. It recycles plant wastes and makes great soil. We have a composting unit in the back yard under a tree.


When I worked in the kitchen, it was hard to save things for composting...

I save my veggie scraps, coffee grounds, filters, tea bags, etc. in a plastic kitty litter bucket under the kitchen sink. If you add shredded paper or substitute sugar packets in there too, it kills the odor.
