Where To Get a Kitchen Catcher
A kitchen catcher is a container with a lid that you use to collect food scraps in your kitchen. It can be carried to and from your larger green bin and easily cleaned. Many stores sell them, or residents can make their own (e.g. a lidded coffee tin, a large yogurt container, or a bowl with a plate on top). Use something you can line with newsprint and seal with a lid to manage odours.
