I have recently bought two bins - a bokashi bin and a compost bin. I need to get one more - a benchtop compost bin - this will complete my bin collection.
A boskashi bin is good for dealing with ALL kitchen waste, including meat and bones. You just need to sprinkle with the magic sawdust (bokashi additives) and bury the waste in your garden once it has been 'pickled'.
My compost bin is a massive 190L black one on wheels. I can turn it to air it and move it around the garden to chase the sun. I will be putting all my fruit and veg waste here, plus newspaper and grass cuttings.
I am very excited about minimising rubbish. Now I just gotta watch plastic packaging I bring home. I'm aiming for one small bag of rubbish per week.
