Additional Information

Slimline Compost Caddy Fits Under the Sink

  • Easy and affordable way to store kitchen scraps out of sight
  • Narrow profile fits under the sink
  • Wide opening makes scraping plates easy
  • Easy to open; shuts securely
  • We also offer replacement filters

If you prefer to keep kitchen compost scraps out of sight, here's a slim compost caddy that tucks into a narrow space in a cabinet or under the sink. Wide enough for scraping vegetable scraps from plates and cutting boards, it holds a generous 2.4 gallons — more than twice as much as most caddies. The hinged lid opens easily and snaps tightly shut, and a carbon filter controls odors.

    Fits great under the sink and holds a lot of compost until I can get outside to empty it.

      Comments about : Slimline Compost Caddy:

      From the catalog picture, it looked like it was on rails (beneath the kitchen sink). However, in hindsight it was completely my impression and looking at it again, I definitely stretched my imaginatioon : )

      It is the perfect size, not only because I (like most) have pipes under my sink making for cramped spaces. Also because most veggie/fruit scraps are usually long (carrots, asparagus, celery, bananas, etc) so the elongated design makes sense.
      My best purchase this gardening season.

          This is the perfect size for beneath the kitchen sink. The filters prevent fruit flies and odors.

            We've had two over a few years. Bought because it held more than typical kitchen composters. Green bucket is sturdy. Flimsiest piece is the lid - on one bucket, lid wouldn't snap closed. Filter kept falling out. As a result, fruit flies get in so it defeats the purpose of keeping it indoors. So we left on our deck, but lid cracked even more since it wasn't made for outside. But the green buckets are still in good shape. Wish we could get replacement lids. A product is only as good as its weakest link.

                I bought two. now I need to see if I can return them.
                They are no good to me if the bags don't fit.

                makes taking collecting and taking compost out a lot easier and the biodegradable bags are good but could be a bit bigger.

                    No spills, your cutting board or plate fit right over the compost pail.

                      Disappointed in this product. The narrow design does fit under the sink but makes it difficult to scoop stuff into it. Poor quality. The lid cracked after one day. Also the Gardeners.com compost bags don't fit it. I've gone back to my counter-top bucket with the GREAT compost bags from gardeners.com. This is gathering dust.

                      I have just purchased my second one of these, so that should indicate that I think it's a good product. My first one was very handy (I even bought one for a friend), but the plastic lid began to break down after a few years of use, and eventually broke altogether. It holds a lot of scraps, and can be tucked away under the sink, although I find it more convenient to keep it on the countertop. The plastic does eventually hold odors, which I found could be mitigated with a good soak in a solution of dishwasher soap. The carbon filter is of dubious value, I wouldn't bother buying extras.
