5 Quick Fixes: In-Counter Compost Solutions

Julie Carlson March 29, 2013

Confession: I am a reluctant composter. I know, I know. My impulse is to scrape the dinner plates into the sink, whirl the disposal, and be done with it. I do have a stainless compost bucket under the sink, but it’s an awkward–and less-than-fragrant–arrangement. In my next life, I plan to incorporate an in-counter compost solution. And you? Do you keep a lidded pail on the counter? Tell us your techniques in the comments section:
