If your compost bin or area is close to the house you may not require a counter-bin for your compost scraps... If you're like me, ours isn't close and I'm not a huge fan of running out every time I have an eggshell.
Therefore, you need a place to store those leftovers in between visits to your compost station outdoors. There are lots of options now, as with any kitchen gadget. Here are a couple of our favorites.
*I know that lots of people create their own or use something they already had. If you start to notice that your bin smells, get you a bin like these- they are set up with odor inhibitors to help keep your kitchen smelling like cookies, not yesterday's banana peels.

One of the newest things that I've seen is a Freezer Bin- here is a short video about said bin from Fuccillo Design. I plan to get my hands on one of these very soon...
Have an interesting bin to share with us? Let's hear 'em!
