The Folger's snap lid coffee containers make great counter top compost collectors. No smell, no bugs. Easy to clean. (Maxwell House containers have a hollow handle that doesn't clean well.) Folger's has DIY stickers to cover their advertising, or a template to create your own. Looks okay on the counter, but small enough to tuck under the sink.

The key to composting is to get the goodies into a worm bin asap. Set a Rubbermaid tub - with a lid - just outside the kitchen door for the daily kitchen donations. Feed the tub-o-worms for about a month with shredded newspaper, kitchen waste, and a little soil. Then rotate a new tub with a few worms and start the next one. It takes a handful of worms about two months to turn those peelings and parings into gorgeous compost for your garden.

Wow!! I checked your link. Hats off to Folger's for those stickers just meant for reusing! That's neat.

Thanks, Dev, for reading and adding your worm bin tips.

Wow, Dev, that is so cool We use those coffee containers a lot and I have shared them with MG buddies. Excellent in the garden for fertilizer, collecting seeds, plant labels, tons of things. I prefer the MHouse cause the handle is easier but I see for composting Folger's is peferable. I am now reconsidering my order of the Stainless steel pail... still have several coffee 'cans' in the garage...

And how great that Folger's offers these labels!
