SECTION: Compost and Soil Fertility,
We received a sample of this several years ago and scoffed at it; but after using it we have decided that it’s a really handy design. There is a place in the lid for a charcoal filter, so the ingredients inside do get air, but the odor doesn’t come out into the kitchen. It has a carrying handle for taking it out to the compost pile, and it’s easy to clean when you bring it back in. It fits easily in a cupboard under the sink. It is dark green heavy plastic, 12 ½ inches tall, 8" X 6 ½ " at the top. It holds 2 ½ gallons of kitchen scraps…enough to go for a while between trips to the garden. The charcoal filter is reported to last 3-4 months, but we have had one last much longer than that. Comes with one filter. Note: this is for collecting kitchen scraps to carry them out to an outdoor compost pile; it is not suitable for indoor composting.
