Food Scrap Composting Tips
Let’s make food scrap composting a part of our daily routine. Here are some tips to make it easy and clean.
Keep a small tub near your cutting board. Place all those vegetable peelings and trimmings into a bin that you can easily transfer to your large green compost bin.
You can line it with a compostable bag to make things even tidier. Just make sure the bag is BPI-certified. A paper bag works great too!
Out of sight!
Place your compost pail under the sink within easy reach of trimming your vegetables or cleaning your plates.
Milk carton reuse:
Some folks like to use a milk carton to collect food scraps. Once it’s full, you can toss the whole thing into your green bin. Yep, the milk carton turns into compost, too.
Line your compost pail with newspaper or a paper bag to minimize any mess.
