I put my coffee grounds along with the (bleached) coffee filters in the compost bin, along with veg scraps and egg shells.

I do that when it isn't winter.

I keep a covered pail on the counter, then empty outside in the compost heap.

I'm just not up for keeping a path to the composter cleared through the snow.

I do it, except on alternate Tuesdays when the moon is full and the wind is out of the east, UNLESS a dove has pooped on my car during the night. In that case, on the way to the compost bin, I fling it at the dove.

Kathleen bought a Natures Mill composter and it sits in our pantry. I have to empty the bin to a bucket outside every few weeks.

It really does cut down on garbage, we have like 1/4 trash can to put out each week, compared to neighbors who don't recycle or compost, and who put out 3-4 or more full cans.

Coffee grounds make for great compost too!

Very nifty. I don't think I will be getting one of those just yet. The Canadian places seem to sell versions that start at $399.

Maybe I should try worm composting.

Coffee grounds can be used as mulch without even composting them. So can tea leaves.

Yeah, I notice the difference in the amount of garbage we put out in winter. But, we do the recycle thing as well, so it really isn't huge amounts of garbage.

TL, I just have a nice looking copper pail with a lid. It merely sits on the counter, and doesn't do anything else other than hold scraps till we dump it. I think I got it from Gardens Alive, but any small container with a lid would do.
