You could just let kitchen scraps pile up in a mixing bowl. However, after a few hours, the organic material will start to have an odor. Flies might move in. Uncovered scraps may attract other unwanted insects. You would have to empty this type of compost pail into the larger compost bin after each meal. That is too inefficient for most householders. That is where a compost pail comes into play!
The best compost pails are:
- made of a durable material that’s easy to rinse out or wash
- material is not prone to taking on unpleasant odors
- allows air flow
- resists insect invasions
- has a minimal footprint, or can be hung on a cupboard or wall
- is easy to handle
