Before we give you our easy big idea, here's some info and how-to on composting:

How To Compost 
Composting requires warm temperatures at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit, moderate moisture, and space to turn the pile. You can really make kitchen waste composting as simple or as complex as you which. The end results are finer with multiple bins or with a rotating tumbler whereas piles on the ground or mixing into garden beds yields more robust and chunkier compost.

For the simplest way, keep an air tight container in the kitchen, on the counter or under the sink are common places, where you will store your scraps as you go. You can even purchase biodegradable bags to line your container with, even you don't plan to add it to any soil and choose to dispose of it in your yard waste container instead.  Be sure to empty that bag every 5 days or so, since it is compostable and will begin to biodegrade as well. 


For even more thorough kitchen composting, you can also utilize a worm bin where the little guys eat their way through your debris and deposit moist worm castings for fertilizer and soil amendment. {www.gardeningknowhow.com}
