    Ceramic crock in the kitchen with a lid; when it fills up (it doesn't take long), it goes to the big composter outside. Sometimes if I'm making something that leaves lots of compostables, I'll just put the trimmings on a dinner plate and leave that near the crock so, when I'm done, it all goes out. Easier to place stuff on the plate and easier to clean it (dishwasher). But it can't sit open on the counter overnight.

    We have plastic containers by the sink that I empty at least once dailey into a cat litter bucket. It is DH’s job to take that litter bucket out to whichever compost pile is being fed.

    I'm just using an old pot for compost and dump it every night. Eventually I'd like a compost container that's meant specifically for kitchen counters

    But DH bought heather plants for our front yard, and I understand they like acidic soil, so I'm segregating the coffee grounds--I take them out of my French press in the morning and put them in a little plastic take-out container, and then pour/spread them around the plants later in the day.

    If you're in Burlington, you might want to see what Gardener's Supply has for compost bins. I got mine from World Market (on line), but I buy the composting liner bags from Gardener's Supply (my brother works there, so I get his discount). Yes it seems silly to buy something just for composting, but my compost is only emptied maybe every 4-5 days and my old container really retained odors. My composter is a grey stoneware with a lid that has a carbon filter in it. Its not something I have to hide when company is over.

    So funny you said that! I have a Gardener's Supply catalog right here at arms-length, and one of the things I circled was this.

    Plus my kids gave me a $50 gift card from Gardener's Supply for Mother's Day!
