Exaco Trading ECO-2000 Kitchen Compost Waste Collector Review
Smaller than advertised, but still a good buy.,
I wanted a compost keeper that I wouldn’t have to empty every day. I eat a lot of produce and create a lot of compostable waste. This Compost Waste Collector had the largest volume of all those listed on Amazon.
The bad news is that it is NOT as large as advertised. It is not 2.4 gallons, but only 2 gallons. It is still large, though.
The carbon insert means it never smells, which is nice. It fits under my kitchen sink. I empty it about twice a week. The handle is strong and works. The lid closes tightly.
I’m glad I bought this Compost Waste Collector. I would recommend it to anyone.
Exactly what I was looking for to keep in my kitchen under the sink. I originally had only a bucket and the gnats/fruit flies were becoming an issue. Along with the extra filters and biodegradable bags I purchased, this Compost Waste Collector makes saving for the compost bin almost effortless.
kitchen waste container, not all that great,
It was reccomended by Americas test kitchen. The top has a crack in it 1st time I used it and put the so called smell filter on, Not easy to empty. i’m going to back to the old one I had for 7 years.
I had read all the reviews before purchasing this Compost Waste Collector. For the people who were not happy with how the item was packaged, I disagree that just being put in a box and sent was a bad thing. I don’t believe in all this excess packaging that is just a waste. This isn’t a fragile item that needs protection. I don’t believe that the manufacturer or Amazon can be held responsible for damage that occurs in shipping. Sometimes things break, all you have to do is return them.
After using this for a couple of weeks I think the people who reported a crack in the bottom must have tried stuffing it because it is very strong and sturdy. I empty mine once a week and so far no odor or gnat problems.
I had seen this Compost Waste Collector for sale at our local botanical gardens gift shop for $25 and wanted to see if I could have gotten it for less money so I am very happy. The only thing I don’t understand is the two green pieces included. The only place I found for them was in the hinge for the handle but I don’t see what they do.
Its worth the money, buy it, compost more, be as green as you can.
The Compost Waste Collector is easy to use. I left it in the kitchen for a few days with some scraps in it without it smelling. Even when you open the lid there is no immediate odor. I put it outside because I don’t have much room but found it is easy to lift the lid with one hand although the lid will stay shut if it is tipped over. It took several days to get it full enough for me to empty in my compost pile, rather than everyday having to make that trip to dispose of garbage.
