      Instead of daily visits to my compost pile, I keep this in the basement until it's full, THEN make the trek outside in the cold. No smell, and easy to open and close.

      Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

      I was somewhat skeptical of how well this would work in keeping the odor out of our kitchen, but the bucket does what it claim to do - seals the odor in. The top is easy to loosen and seals in nicely.

      Difficult to assemble

      By Kackie

      Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

      The upper 2-part lid came wedged firmly together. I had to run a screwdriver along the rim before I could unscrew the top portion. The bottom portion of the lid was just as difficult to attach to the bucket, finally I placed the bucket upside down onto the lid, and jumped on it. Mission accomplished!

      The instructions were not very helpful.....

      Judging by the other reviews this should be a nice container for compost for those cold winter months when I don't want to walk out to the composter with scraps.

          Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

          I keep this just outside and dump my countertop composter into it. When its full, I walk it over to the big compost bed and viola, done! This is the best solution I've found for easy handling of a pretty good amount of material. The five gallon bucket is the perfect size for holding enough that it doesn't have to be emptied constantly yet small enough to be carried without breaking my back. I highly recommend it.

            This is so great for collecting food leftovers and big enough that it only has to be carried to the compost pile once a week or so. I would recommend it to others

            • Good Color

            • Holder On Handle

            Best Uses

              Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

              This bucket is considerably better than a basic lidded bucket. It keeps the smells contained. It saves me trips out to the compost bin. The lid works smoothly and easily. The dark green is attractive. The only thing I would change to make the great bucket a perfect one would be the holder on the handle. I have this type of holder on other buckets. They don't last long. The weight of the bucket filled with compost causes them to break. A handle holder like on fish tank buckets would be comfortable and considerably stronger.

                Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

                I am using my bucket to store stinky used kitty litter until garbage day. Even on hot summer weeks, the stink is contained! I don't empty it into my regular garbage can until the night before pickup.

                I purchased this item for my daughter, who told me she could not get the lid to close. When I went to visit her, I tried and it just wouldn't work. So now she just uses it as a storage bucket, something I could have purchased for $3. Very disappointed

                  Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:

                  Perfect for storing compost between trips to the outside bin or when the weather is terrible and you just can't make yourself go out to the bin. The airtight gasket keeps all odors from getting out - which really helps if you're keeping the bucket just outside the door and there are bears in the neighborhood (which there are where we live). Wonderful idea! Only problem was installing the gasket, because the cover had been spun into place when we got it. Once that was solved, no problems at all! Great product!
