Compost Bin by OXOÂ®
We try to compost whatever we can and use it in our small garden.
Our old bin was actually a more expensive, stainless steel affair. It was good but needed to have a filter replaced often and, worst of all, need two hands to open it.
The new compost bin from the Container Store is not unwieldy, easy to clean and light as a feather. We will continue to use a couple of plastic produce bags because we can pile up the bags and go out to the composter when we need to.
The best thing, however, is that I can open it with one hand!

it fits perfectly on the counter - not too big and not too small, and it's very convenient to use and easy to take to the compost bin. my husband and i especially like that the top stays open as described. a nice surprise was finding that the top closes more securely than expected. we can't imagine anyone being disappointed in this product!

I wanted a compost container that wouldn't rust and wouldn't chip. This was the most attractive one I found that was made out of plastic. It works great, too. It's light weight, the lid stays open and it's easy to clean. I collect vegetable peels, etc. every day and empty the bucket about every other day.

perfect little kitchen compost bin
i've been looking for a compost bin for a few months now and since i've found a way to compost from my condo, this thing has been just perfec for my kitchen. it's small and fits right under the sink. there's no need to worry about smell becuase its just so small, it fills up fairly quickly! people always worry about the smell, esp. becuase there is no coal filter here but i assure you, the amount of food waste that will be sitting in this bin would be sitting in your garbage can anyway.
