Since I don’t really have the extra space in my yard for composting, I was excited to hear that Salt Lake City now allows compost items in the yard waste bins. Which got me thinking about compost bins in the kitchen…
There are several ways to store compost scraps in the kitchen, some more basic, and others pretty complex.
The best compost-specific containers will have a filter and some sort of ventilation. These are 2 of my favorites:
This machine by Nature Mill has 2 chambers. Add your scraps to the top chamber, and the unit will mix, heat, and aerate the waste, then transfer it to the bottom tray, where you pull it out – it’s ready to use as compost in less than 2 weeks.
