  • Great compost pail

    Has an inner ring to hold down compost bags. The lid attaches to the pail - very helpful.

  • compost pail

  • Functional & Pretty

    I love my new Simplehuman countertop compost pail. It is functional & pretty. We don't actually compost, but we do separate our food scraps from our burnable trash. This item is a huge improvement over what I used previously (a white plastic frame that held a plastic bag & you were able to see & smell the food scraps). I use a one gallon ziploc bag inside the container & it fits perfectly. I really like the inner ring that keeps the bag in place and out of site. When it's time to empty the pail, I lift the ziploc bag out, zip it up & out it goes. Twice so far, I've had leaky, messy bags & the pail was easy to clean up. I wish I could find eco-friendly bags easily & inexpensively. I highly recommend this countertop compost pail!!

  • Sturdy compost bucket

    I like this bucket because it has a charcoal filter and is sturdy enough to leave n the counter wihtout it accidentally turning over. The hook on the lid is a nice feature. When I am preparing veggies, I simply hook the lid to the bucket and it stays put. What is thepurpose of the stainless steel ring? I have lost it several times in the compost bin because it is not attached. Finally, I just removed it completely. It seems to serve no discernible function.

  • Nicest compost pail

    I have been looking to get a compost pail which I was happy with for quite awhile. I wanted something which had good size, would fit under the counter and was easy to clean. This is the perfect fit. i can fit lots in it, it cleans up easy and there is no odor due to the charcoal filter, which was included- 2 of them. I got a second one soon after receiving the first.

Questions & Answers

  • I need to bag my compost for a community bin. Can it hold a bag without showing? Do you sell them separately?

    • Hello emby22, unfortunately this item is out of stock. We currently do not have inventory to check, and cannot guarantee the item will be restocked. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • What grade of stainless-steel? I had previously purchased a different brand of compost pail that was labeled as stainless-steel. Over time (6-7 months), the scraps from the kitchen and coffee grounds ate a hole through the metal.

    • Thank you for shopping with us gardeningiswork. I will post when the information is available. This has a 5 year warranty which doesn't speak of the steel but of the quality of the product.

  • how big is it??

    • It is 8.6 inches wide x 13.5 inches high x 7.2 inches deep with the storage capacity of 1.2 gallons (4.5 liters).
