Although a bit more thought,time and effort is involved, the bin turns kitchen scraps into garden compost beneficial for building up the soil.
Much better than kitchen food waste ending up in landfill.
I love the Bokashi composting bucket. It is so easy to use and keeps so much food waste out of landfill. Using Bokashi also means I don't get flies in my regular kitchen bin. Its very cheap to run with the Bokashi bran too - you don't need much.
