composting workhorse

Needed to stem the good compost scraps going into the garbage at work....got two of these to do the work. Filled with food scraps and coffee grounds....it doesn't stink up my car at all when I haul it home to the compost heap. And I get lots of compost out of it! Cleans up easy, just hose it out. And yes, the filter does last a long time.

Just right

This bin is just the right size for my family that I empty it often enough that it doesn't get too funky but not so often that I'm trekking to the compost pile after every meal. I like that you can hook it to the under the sink cupboard door. It keeps it off the counter, but still accessible.

Great little compost carrier

I currently have two of these compost carriers and they have been in full use for about 7 years. I use my compost carriers daily and empty them about once a week. Considering what they go through....trips to the garden or compost pile where they are beat upside down to extract the wet contents, tossed on the ground while the compost is being buried, etc.....they have held up admirably. No cracks, leaks or any problems. The weakest point if the handle attachment. This attachment holds up just fine if you treat the bucket with a bit of respect. In other words, don't try to always carry an overly heavy ton of compost in the bucket; don't yank the handle around unnecessarily or torque the handle into unnatural positions, etc. Common sense care for something made from plastic. I say this because I owned one of these prior to the two carriers I currently have. I was less than careful and the handle gave way and broke at the attachment point.

Then filters last forEVER! I let my nose tell me when to change it. When I can walk into the kitchen and smell the compost (the carriers reside under the kitchen sink) I know it's past time to change the filter. I just changed the filters on my two carriers and I'm going to guess it was three years ago that I changed them. (Really.....and I have an overly sensitive nose so I don't think I was just ignoring what others might otherwise detect)

The lid does seem to be very slightly curved/warped and doesn't sit very flat (I don't think this is by design, I think it just that the lid is an unsupported piece of plastic) but this has not proved to be a problem when it comes to odor leakage.

If you have an ant problem, this bucket can not keep them out, but a simple solution to that is to place the bucket in a pan of water.

I would love it if these weren't plastic, but in spite of that, I am one happy customer.
