What's so great about composting? For starters, there really is nothing better for the soil than compost. It not only loosens clay soils, but it helps sandy soils retain water. And best of all, it contains no petroleum-based compounds, as many commercial fertilizers do. Gardens that use compost produce higher yields of healthy fruits, vegetables and flowers. Plus, landfills are running out of space. According to a recent EPA estimate, almost a quarter of the garbage in this country is composed of food scraps and yard trimmings -- that's about 60 million tons every year. So if you're not composting yet, it's time to start. If you live in a city apartment or in a home without a yard, it's likely that your area has a community composting center. Check out or the EPA for local resources in your area.

What are some household items that can be composted? Vegetables, coffee grounds/filters, tea/tea bags, crushed eggshells, nutshells, houseplants, leaves, cardboard rolls, cereal, boxes, brown paper bags, clean paper, paper towels, wood chips, sawdust, toothpicks, grass clippings, yard trimmings, hay and straw

I received a brand new compost collector after the lid on mine broke. I am very happy and back to using it every day! (Keeps me from having to run outside to the big composter all day long) Totally recommend! No smell, no bugs!

Review by Debbie on 1/5

I love this. Have to keep on top of emptying in a timely manner, but works great!

Review by jesyka9 on 4/6

This container is the perfect size to have on my kitchen counter. No bad smells. Love it.

To assure your compost collector doesn't collect bugs and smells, especially if you live in a warm humid climate, it is best to empty it into your compost pile, at the end of each day, before dark. Also, do not put anything containing meat or dairy (creamy salad dressing) in the composter. It works if you use common sense!

Bad concept

Bad concept

The only container inside the compost collector is the bag, which means you need to buy more bags and have another thing to compost, thus delaying compost time. I did not realize there was not a container inside (other than the bag) when I purchased it, and I am really not happy with the product. I do not want to have to buy more things to use a thing. This requires specialty compostable bags. Very disappointed. :(

I had this and used this for a little less than a year. One day I heard a noise looked over and the top was flying off. One of the hinges had broken. I emailed MightyNest, told them what happened and asked if anything could be done to replace the lid. She said she would contact the manufacturer and get back to me. Never heard from anyone again. That was 6 months ago. Too bad because I really liked the product.

Review by Linda on 10/19

I was so looking forward to trying this item because it said less smell and less bugs and I was hoping to find something that I didn't have to empty every day . Not only did it smell, after day 2, I was met with a cloud of gnats when I opened it.
So emptied it and tried adding bits of paper and coffee grounds to the mix next try . It did better but this time it leaked all over my counter. The bag had disintegrated. Haven't tried it since

About Full Circle
It’s a simple reality: our product choices are limited to what we can find on store shelves. And more often than not, products that are the most accessible aren’t always the most eco-friendly. Or good looking. That’s just the way it’s been for ages.  But the game has changed—with Full Circle’s line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Like scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fiber. They’ve even made pot scrubbers that fully biodegrade!  Important behind-the-scenes changes are happening at Full Circle, too—such as improved working conditions, cleaner manufacturing methods and higher environmental standards. Even their suppliers have come around to their way of thinking. (They’re kind of persuasive that way.)At Full Circle, we believe in constantly striving to do things better. Because while there may be a finite number of resources in the world, there’s an infinite number of ways to use them more wisely. And figuring out how to do that is what gets us up every morning.
