Compost bin: on counter or below counter?
I'm trying to figure out what to do with the compost bin. Currently, we have this square plastic container which the frozen creme puffs came in on the counter next to the sink. My husband likes press pot coffee so the coffee grounds make a huge mess all around. I want to find a solution for my new kitchen for it.
I've seen a picture in a book where they put in a stainless steel square container (think cafeteria) in a drawer. First of all, where would you get one. Second, will the coffee grounds get all over the floor as your emptying the press pot?
Maybe this will work for us since there is a drawer above the pull out trash/recycle drawer.
I've also seen pictures of someone putting a hole in the countertop with the bin in it. Our counter will be Stainless Steel with undermount or integrated SS sink so there are NO CREVICES to catch coffee grounds (are you getting the feeling I hate coffee grounds?)
Oh, and it has to be pretty big b/c my kids love fruit and one meals worth it overflows potato peels, etc.
What's your solution?
