I like to shop at Sam’s Club for my coffee and as such I end up with these 1 gallon red plastic containers that used to end up in the trash. However, after looking at some rather expensive counter top composting bins (around $30.00 for ½ gallon container at Bed Bath and Beyond)
I realized that my used coffee cans could do the exact same thing without buying the fancy container from the big box store. Since I drink coffee anyway, this container comes to me as a freebie. The size of this compost bin makes it able to be stored on your countertop under your sink or on top of the refrigerator.
Also, I cannot stress this enough; remove or change the label and keep it far away from your coffee pot… that would not be the best way to wake up in the morning.
