If you want to up your recycling commitment and feed your garden, you might consider an indoor compost bin. Compost bins hold biodegradable materials such as food waste. Compost forms when the microorganisms in the soil eat the organic materials. Once excreted, the matter can be absorbed as nutrients for plants. The benefits of indoor compost bins are twofold: you can cut down on food waste and the cost of soil nutrients. Most indoor compost bins are made of plastic, ceramic, or metal. For an indoor bin, you’ll want a bin that keeps odor contained, is rust resistant, and is leak-free
