Compost Cart Odor
Try layering dry yard waste and wet food waste to contain odors. When you don’t have yard waste, putting a layer of newspaper or shredded documents at the bottom of the cart, and bagging food scraps in a paper shopping bag is an option. Keeping the lid closed at all times holds odors in, even if the interior smells between pickups.
