• Try to find a space outside for your buckets out of direct sun

  • Store your food waste in an old tupperware container with lid (reuse a large yogurt or salad container) and store food waste in the fridge or freezer until you put it in your bucket
  • You can also buy a kitchen pail made to hold food for compost
  • In your bucket, put newspaper between each layer of food waste

  • Or use compostable bags (not biodegradable bags) as a liner in your kitchen collection container
