How To Use A Kitchen Pail:

Simply collect unwanted leftovers and food scraps (such as vegetable peels, pits, and stems) in your countertop kitchen pail and empty the pail into the Organics Cart daily or every few days. To avoid odors and messes, your kitchen pail can be lined with newspaper, brown paper bags, or certified compostable bags, which can be found at many grocery stores and online retailers.
