Hanging Compost Container

by Jean
(Kent, England)

I am looking for the type of bin that hangs on a kitchen drawer front, which enables me to prepare my veg on a board on the worktop, then just scrape the waste into the collector. I have seen one somewhere and just wish I had bought it, because I can't remember where it was now. The edge was the width of the drawer with two clips that hooked over the drawer front, the front edge being moon shaped giving a good sized space for collection. Any ideas?

More Info and Possible DIY
by: Compost Junkie Dave

Hi Jean,

Unfortunately, we're not familiar with this design, but it seems like a fantastic idea.

Can you provide us with a little more information about the compost container? What material was it made of? Did you see it online or in a store?

The design is relatively simple by the sounds of it so if you, or someone you know, is handy you may be able to re-create it on your own. If you do happen to go this route, please send us some pictures or a video, so we can share it with the community.

In the meantime, we'll keep our eyes open for you.

Hi Dave, the one I saw was in a magazine I think, but can't remember which one. It was made of a white rigid plastic and I thought at the time, if it was black or better still stainless steel I would order it. Now I wish I had ordered it regardless!

I keep looking!!

Arnie, you're wonderful.

I can only guess that this is the unit Jean was referring to. Thank you so much for posting this for her and the rest of the Tribe.

Below is a picture of the unit from Amazon.com. Click on the image for reviews of the product, all of which are pretty darn positive.

Hi Dave,

How fantastic, I am really thrilled to read your comment today, I had almost given up hope of ever finding this product again. Thank you so much and congratulations to Arnie too. My order is going in today to Amazon for several of these for me and my family.

Great site.

All the best

Thanks for following up Jean.

I'm so happy for you. I'm going to order one for our place too. For less than $10, it's definitely worth a try.

Thanks again for making the connection Arnie. Couldn't have done this without you.

I have one
by: JR

Bought this originally through Lee Valley tools and think it a great design as it hangs over a cupboard door just beneath my cutting board. They don't sell them anymore unfortunately. Mine has lasted a couple of years but the edges are now broken and I suspect that the part that hangs it will also break. Would love this design in stainless steel. Have looked everywhere for another one to replace mine with no luck. I don't have counter space for a container and I use it so often that having it in a cupboard won't work for me either. Anyone finding this design please let me know.
