10 Easy Pieces: Kitchen Compost Bins

Composting is an essential kitchen task. When I began composting our kitchen scraps (I live in area with a great municipal compost program), we cut our trash output by more than half. Now, when I see a natural item in the (landfill) trash bin in public—a flower steam, orange rind, or stale bread—, I can’t help but think “what a waste.”

Waste not! With these attractive kitchen compost bins, food waste has the potential for a second life.

N.B.: For a winning compost hack that converts a deep kitchen drawer to quick compost bin access, see our newest book Remodelista: The Low-Impact Home: A Sourcebook for Stylish, Eco-Conscious Living.
