Air-tight bucket lets you collect multiple compost crocks’ worth of kitchen scraps before heading out to your compost bin. Twist-on/twist off lid with gasket contains odors. Across the country laws are being passed that prohibit food scraps in the trash. This collection bucket makes it easy to collect scraps for bringing to your municipal compost facility. Composting recycles food waste and turns it into a valuable soil amendment.

I love this bucket!
from Dryden Mi
Comments about : Big Green Compost Bucket:
I placed under my sink instead of using a counter top composter. It's out of site but still easy access. Unless I'm doing a large volume (canning season) I only have to empty 1-2 times a week instead of multiple times a day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the compost, hated having to travel out every couple days. This makes it a weekly chore. Perfect.

Perfect for Winter Composting
from Quechee, Vermont
Using the Compost Bucket is great in the winter in Vermont when the compost in the outside tumbler is frozen (and doesn't tumble or do much composting). The Compost Bucket serves as the holding bucket for daily food scraps, allowing us to add to and tumble the outside composter on warmer days.

Love this! Keep it in my basement until it's full.
By Pat the Gardener
from Morris, Pa
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.

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
from Morristown New Jersey
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.

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
Super Compost Bucket
from Frankfort, KY
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.
I am pleased to have a decent sized bucket for my compost
from Temple City California
I love having something I don't have to empty every day. Its big enough to last for a couple of days and then on the compost
