Since The City of Toronto is week three into a city workers strike that includes garbage collection, it appears (see above) to be a very good time to reintroduce some resources on small space composting.
One sure-fire, easy way to compost that I haven’t included here is to dig a hole. Yes, like the infomercials say, It is that easy! Dig a deep hole, put the scraps into the hole and cover it over. Done. Dig a really deep hole if you plan to bury crab and shrimp shells, fish parts, or anything that might attract vermin. Your plants will love it!
In lieu of digging a hole, I present to you these other very viable options:
- Our fantastic craptastic compost bin – It may not look like much but it gets the job done.
- Vermicomposting – Composting with a worm bin. Perfect for apartment dwellers and people with no outdoor space.
- An even smaller worm bin – Including a few extra tips I figured out along the way.
- Urban Composting – Make a small compost bin for a roof or deck
- Things you can compost that you didn’t think you could – The list is a lot larger than you think.
