COLUMN 1: OUR COLLECTOR
Allows aerobic decomposition by letting air flow freely
A slower, gentler decomposition process
Prevents nasty build up and fluids
Keeps organic kitchen waste drier, reducing bad odors
Does not require special filters
COLUMN 2: OTHER COLLECTORS
Closed design does not let oxygen in, resulting in anaerobic decomposition
Break down happens quickly, which can lead to some stinky business and lots of flies due to bacteria growth
Keep liquids sitting in the bottom of container to collect
Often require expensive filters that just don’t work
Place a compostable bag inside the Fresh Air compost collector, securing it with the wire rim to keep things in place so you don’t have to fish for the bag later.
Collect kitchen scraps and organic waste throughout the week.
After the week is through, lift the rim gently to pull the bag out for delivery to your yard or local composting center.
Slide the unit in to your dishwasher for fast clean up.
Give yourself a high five. That was easy, right?
Something to remember: Plastic bags are a no-no. They won’t let the Fresh Air Compost Collector work its magic, so make sure you’re using compostable bags with an ASTM 6400 certification.
No biggie. Lots of our fans are city dwellers or live in a home without a yard. Composting is becoming more common and your city probably already has a community center where you can donate your scraps. Check out Earth911.com or EPA.gov for info on resources close to you.

Best indoor compost unit Review by Angie
I live in NZ and have tested a number of bins to store and I will my compost before I take it outside and this is the only one that does what it says it will do. No smell, easy to clean, easy to use and looks ok on the bench. This is an outstanding product and I have recommended to everyone. Happy composting from New Zealand. (Posted on 12/11/2015)
