Often, people wonder how to collect food scraps for their compost heap in a neat way that won’t smell. Thankfully, the smart community members at the Evenings in the Dirt Facebook page (join us!) offer low cost (okay, cheap!) ways to collect those vegetable/fruit scraps.
Here are some of the imaginative ideas from the Facebook community:
- Ice cream buckets
- Decorative container with a rubber seal
- Glass measuring cup
- A crock with a seal
- A yogurt container
- Nothing–just throw them into the garden or compost heap
- Plastic ice bucket with lid
What other ideas do you have for ways to hold your food scraps for the compost heap?
