Composting from work
For the last few months I'd been troubled whenever I walked past a waste bin at co-workers' desks and seen apple cores and banana peels. It seemed like a waste.
So, each day I now bring in two plastic containers. The smaller one is for apple cores and pieces of tomato -- for the chickens. The larger one is for orange peels and banana peels -- for the compost.
My co-workers now "donate" their food waste to me, and I take it home every day. I'm going through a banana phase, so most days I eat 3-5 bananas -- and a co-worker who is a weightlifter eats 3-5 apples a day. So, between the two of us we're generating a decent volume.
UPDATE: This has been so successful that I've had to upgrade my sizes: the "compost" container is now a red plastic cookie "tin", and the "chicken" container is the blue-lidded one in the photo.
UPDATE #2: Ah! I **already** posted a blog entry about this. Ah well.
