Store Food Waste in Freezer Until Garbage Day

To omit odors from our garbage can inside the house, if we have anything that may start to smell after a day or so (examples: the styrofoam that meat comes on, banana peels, etc.), I simply put it in a plastic grocery bag and put that in my freezer. I add to that bag all week long if I have items that may start to smell before garbage day. I also scrape our dinner plates into this bag after meals.

I didn't know other people did what I do!! I thought I was the only eccentric one doing this ;-)

I eat salmon frequently and put the wrappings in the freezer until garbage day. Sometimes I microwave the wrappings to make it safer too.

Great idea! (if you don't have a compost pile, that is, LOL.)

I do that too! To remind me each garbage day I put a clothespin on my garbage bag under my sink and one on the bag in freezer.

We have 3 cans for "garbage" here in most cities in California. One is actual garbage, the second one is for recycle stuff, the third one is for yard waste (read - compostables). I recycle everything I can. Things like potato peels, coffee grounds, egg shells, etc. go in the yard waste can along with weeds etc. from my garden. Everything else goes in the "garbage" can.

Usually only one small bag a week of "garbage" with the "recycle" can about one third full. I keep a bowl on the counter top for banana peels, avocado skins, potato peels, etc. and empty it outside in the yard waste can every day. There is no room in my freezer to store garbage. I think that advice must be for people who have a large box freezer in their garage.
