Very Happy It came with the bokashi buckets. Pretty good deal on all three buckets and the bokashi bran. I can't believe I waited so long to start doing something like this!

I got one like yours too. Except once, I put some lentils in it that I used for weighing down a pie crust. I put the lentils in the pail and they Stuck to the sides of the container. Ewwww, what a mess. I bought some lunch sized paper bags and tear the top a little bit and now I just throw the whole thing in the compost pile. Its good to be composting cheers

Ewee. I still have that one from over a year ago, it washes out so easily. Sometimes I line it with a plastic supermarket bag to avoid similar issues like you described.

why does he/she hate it?? Shocked Shocked  We have the exact same one, and we love it, use it multiple times per day. NEVER smells, easy to clean. People don't even really notice it. We keep it on the counter behind the faucet so it's easy to get to.

I tried to place in same location to no avail.  Logic is not an option to "She that must be obeyed"

I did try to bring it up again this PM, no joy.  Back to the pantry!

Show us your kitchen compost container - Page 5 Empty I Am Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

Post  batmap on 8/9/2013, 12:45 am

Buying pretty containers is nice, but recycling and thriftiness win in my opinion. I love the stacking coffee containers w/lid the best.

I have a cheap one made from a milk jug. A cellphone photo failed to send, so here goes my description. I use a single empty 1-gallon plastic milk container, with the lid attached. A single 3-sided cut is made in the side to make a panel access, so filling and emptying the jug requires peeling back the panel. The panel is only cut on 3 sides, so it retains intact appearance. Pushing the panel in or pulling it out will open the jug for access/dumping. Laying the jug on it's side allows 95 percent filling with liquid, but when full the liquid can spill while transporting.

This next one is not my idea, but I like it. Apartment Therapy idea uses two 1-gallon milk containers.

Mine was a gift!! It's easy on the eyes, and you don't see the "icky" stuff that I think sometimes people associate with compost pails. The milk jugs look like a good idea tho!!

Aerodyne, Gosh, I would give it a loving home if we lived closer! I AM the "she who must be obeyed." While building two compost piles, all the kitchen produce scraps were saved in the frig and then the freezer while gathering materials for the piles. Now they just get trashed. Sniff.

Batmap, thanks for sharing the link. Clever re-purpose.

Show us your kitchen compost container - Page 5 Empty Compost Pail in the kitchen

Post  2SooCrew on 9/29/2013, 4:13 pm

Just checking to see what type of pail everyone uses in their kitchen to collect their scraps?

I am finding that if I don't dump them daily, I get fruit flies !!!!

I am using an old ice cream pail ( 1 gal ) and place a dish plate on the top.

I drink instant coffee or I would try the Folger can.

This was on display at the Heirloom Exposition.  About the size of an Oxyclean bucket.  Hummm

Aerodyne have you tried putting it under the kitchen sink.  Then it would be out of sight but quickly  usable.
