Apartment Composting and What to Do With It

Composting might seem like it’s relegated to those lucky home owners with a back yard, but that’s just not true! While it might be a bit more common to start a back yard compost pile, there’s no reason apartment dwellers can’t get in on the composting action!

There are a few different options for kitchen composting, but the other part of small space composting is sorting out what to do with all of that good dirt. Don’t despair! We’ve got you covered there, too.

I keep looking for ways to compost in my apartment, and it seems all the suggestions I find talk about drilling holes into plastic bins as a DIY project. Really? Kinda defeats the purpose of going green, doesn't it?

Maybe eventually my family and I will look into getting worms and stuff to compost in our apartment, but for now we have a big bag we keep in the freezer that's full of scraps that we'll take to the farmer's market soon. I think that farmer's markets and composting programs like are good alternatives for people who can't use worm bins.
