No-Mess Kitchen Compost Container – The Scrap Can!

I finally found the best kitchen compost container for our family. I won’t say it is 100% “no-mess,” but there’s no comparison to any counter-top containers we have used in the past five years.

We had purchased a regular size step-to-open kitchen garbage can. It came with a mini-can of the same design. We couldn’t find a use for it. It was about that same time that we were – yet again – frustrated by our kitchen compost regime…

So… Ta-da! Here it is, the unveiling of our new kitchen compost can!

Best kitchen compost solution for our family – The Scrap Can

Maybe you will relate to why this works so well for us:

  • It is a pain to take the lid off a counter-top container, especially when your hands are most likely pretty grimy. With the can, you just step and toss. I cannot tell you how much more willing my family (ahem…. husband) is willing to put their scraps in the can. This also means I don’t have to dig the veggie scraps out of the regular trash!
  • Kitchen compost containers never hold enough for the volume of scraps we produce in a typical day. I only need to dump our kitchen compost every third day or so.
  • You can line the interior of the can with a biodegradable plastic bag for even less mess. A caveat here is that the longer the compost sits in the bag, the more likely the bag will leak. It happens. Still, LESS mess.
  • When you are ready to take the scraps outside to your compost bin, just lift the interior container out.
  • Counter-top real estate!
  • Less stink!

So far there is only one messy downside: If you over-fill, the inside of the lid to the scrap can will get icky.

Finally, I don’t need to turn into the photo below anymore as cooperation has improved 100%
