Subject: good under-counter can for composting?
 

I'd like to find a decent trash can for under the counter (in a cabinet) for dumping my grounds (for later composting).

The trick is I'd like to have something relatively easy to use.  As in, one-handed, open the cabinet door and be able to dump the drip basket into it.   Without a lot of fiddling and preferably sturdy enough to allow knocking the basket against it a few times to shake it loose.

Any suggestions?  I'm willing to spend a decent bit for something that does the job.  I've checked out most of the local bed/bath sorts of stores and those aren't what I'm after.  Nor do I have a clear shot from above to allow for a through-counter arrangement.  THAT is something I should have planned ahead of time, ah well.

So, any recommendations?  Or advice on what to avoid?

Thanks!
-Bill

Hi Bill,

Check out this plastic container listed on Amazon:

Click Here (www.amazon.com)

One great thing about this one is the activated carbon filter in the lid which keeps any smelly odors in the can.  Of course if you open the top to add more stuff for your compost collection and you've been using it for more than just fairly benign coffee grounds, such as onion or garlic trimmings, you'll be releasing those odors from the can for a few seconds.  It's amazing how well these filtered cans work.  We've had one for many years and never needed to replace a filter.
