I tend to be thrifty. I was excited about waste management offering a new addition to our current recycling program--but at $14 additional a month. I decided to purchase a compost bin instead. This simple bin cost around $40 at Sam's Club (similar to the picture below). Easy to put together and get started.
except for the weekend) and was cold, I thought I would bake.It amazed me that I sent three bowls full of materials out to the compost bin: spilled flour and sugar, egg shells, tea bags, coffee grinds, seven banana peels, etc. Granted--not a ton; however, if every person in my neighborhood alone would have done that today . . .
