This Composter Tin is attractive enough to leave sitting on the kitchen counter to remind home cooks to recycle every scrap of kitchen waste available. Once it's full, simply take it out to the compost heap and empty. Then hand wash and start collecting more scraps. Any non-dairy or meat item can be turned into valuable garden compost. The activated carbon filter in its lid absorbs odours. The Tin is constructed from powder coated carbon steel with a 6.3L capacity. It is 21cm (8.4") tall, with a diameter of 23cm (9.2").
