I thought I was ready to wrap up compost week until I remembered that I forgot to mention how to take compost from your house to your pile/container. If you have your container right outside your kitchen area, I suppose you could put it right in there as you go. We don't have this luxury, so we use an old 3 gallon drink container to put in scraps as we go and empty it when it gets full (about twice a week).
It's great if you can reuse an old container (5 gallon bucket, old trash can, kitty litter bucket, giant snack container, basically anything with a lid) you have at home for this, but sometimes you might not have one lying around or available. In that case there are several options for purchase. There are ceramic, metal, and plastic options. It's just a matter of finding what works best for you.
What do you currently use? Any suggestions?
