A kitchen or backyard composter can turn tons of kitchen waste into a yummy (for plants) food and growth medium.
Home composters recycle vegetable and fruit peelings into food for your gardens, plants and trees.
Use a kitchen composter to dispose of everyday organic kitchen waste. Into the composter goes all vegetable, fruit and plant waste, whether you're peeling coring and
preparing or cleaning out the fridge.
Depending on the type of kitchen composter you choose, either the natural decomposition process will turn the scraps into compost or
worms will convert the scraps into worm castings - a highly prized natural plant fertilizer.
When you're composting kitchen waste, scraps can be kept in a container in your kitchen temporarily and transfered to a backyard composter every day or two.
Some containers are attractive enough to be kept on the counter. Others can be put in a handy spot elsewhere. This is especially useful if your composter is a
worm composter because worms like their food to be slightly decomposed.
Below we have our selection of backyard a composter suitable for composting kitchen waste. We've included
a container in which to keep your kitchen scraps that are waiting to go out to the bin.
Here are some of our favourite composting products.
Having a composter means you'll also have a container of scraps in the kitchen between emptyings. Really, you can use almost any container, a favorite of ours being the
plastic ice cream pail. It works but it's not very pretty and begins to smell if not emptied daily.
