If your city has an organic waste collection program, you know that disposing organic waste is easy and really good for the environment. But let's face it – composting trash isn't pretty. Adding Compy into your daily organic waste disposal routine is an easy way to stop those harsh odors and reduce flies and maggots, and it makes cleaning the bin much simpler, too .
To get a fresher compost bin, here’s how we dispose of our organic waste, using Compy:
2. Add a layer of Compy to the bottom: Moisture builds up in organic waste, and gravity will pull wetness to the bottom of the bin. A good layer of Compy will absorb this moisture. For the bin shown here, we added one hand-full of Compy. Depending on the size of your organic waste bin, you may have to add more or less - experiment and see what works for you!
3. Add organic waste, then more Compy. Add your organic waste to the bin like normal, then add a layer of Compy over it – it's that simple. We recommend adding enough Compy to make it hard to see the organic waste below. This makes it harder for flies and other pests to land on the organic waste and lay their eggs.
4. When the bin is full, empty it. And enjoy a cleaner, healthier organic waste bin!
And remember, this is a general guide, so you might find different amounts of Compy work better for your composting process. Please leave a comment below telling us how much Compy you use, and how it works for you!
