Composting kitchen waste at home
If you have a small amount of kitchen waste, you can compost it at home. You will need a small bin or bucket with a lid to put the waste in.
Composting kitchen bin
A kitchen bin designed for composting is usually made of plastic or metal and has a tight-fitting lid to keep out pests. The bin should have a capacity of at least 3 gallons (11 L) so that it can hold a day’s worth of kitchen scraps. Some kitchen compost bins also come with a Venturi aeration system that helps to speed up the composting process.
