This is a very timely post. Thank you. The bucket I just ended up purchasing looks very much like yours. Now I'm concerned about rust-didn't think of that. I'm also worried that it will be too small. Does the Simple Human have a filter?

Micaela


Lori - yes the simplehuman bucket has came with 2 filters and you can buy more on Amazon. I hope yours works out for you!

I do compost, and I can honestly say that I do not have a store-bought compost bucket. I use 1-gallon milk jugs that I cut the top off of, and I keep them under the sink. I've never noticed a need for a filter, and I often have compost sitting under there for several days before I get around to emptying it. It gets gross - I usually soak it in water and soap for a few hours right after I empty it, but I don't really scrub it, just rinse it. When it gets too gross to be cleaned that way, I get rid of it, and start again. This works for me now because my kids drink a lot of milk so I always have gallon milk jugs to repurpose. When they stop doing that, I'll have to come up with something else.

We keep our compost bucket on the countertop, so I chose a nice looking stainless steel one too. So far, so good!

I had a ceramic one for years that worked very well. It has a carbon filter and I never noticed an odor problem. I am in the market for a new one though. I left this one outside, in the cold and now it has a huge crack! I'll have to look into the SimpleHuman one. Although I might need something larger.

Micaela


Good luck finding the right compost bucket Kristina! I thought the ceramic ones looked nice but I was a little worried about durability. 


Micaela


Kiersten - how often do you have to dump yours? You must have a lot of food scraps with all the cooking you do!

Micaela


Glad to hear that the gallon jugs work for you Stacey. Way to repurpose!!


Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking

We have a compost outside but I really like the idea of having one like this inside! Really good post.

We compost and recycle at the office, infact we have chickens there too now and throw out lunch leftovers to them! However...warning it does encourage rats as we have found out! About me...I run the Green Careers Site at www.Stopdodo.com (as in the extinct bird... also online at www.environmentjobs.com!). I would be interested in writing free content in your blog area regarding career prospects, trends, hot areas, tip etc. Our site centres on environmental jobs / green jobs in the sectors climate change, nature, ecology, recycling, lowcarbon etc.

Love this site by the way!

I have that green bucket. :)

Martha

Very nice post and so helpful. Getting the right equipment for composting is important so that we can have the positive aspects of it without the downsides (smell, flies,...). http://yourgreencity.com

Micaela


Has the green bucket held up for you Tiffany? Mine did for a few years actually but when the handle broke, it was done for. :)


Micaela


Yep, you definitely don't want the smell and the fruit flies. Thanks for stopping by Martha!
