Pick up is every 2 weeks. You receive 2 email reminders the week of. Upon pick up your compost is removed, your bucket is hand cleaned, and 2 new compostable bags are re-secured with your rubber band. Your lid is snapped on.
You can keep it in your kitchen, porch, garage, but just be careful to keep it away from where critters can get into it. Most people keep a smaller recepticol in their kitchen.
Make sure to seal your lid tight after each food addition. Other ideas: Some people freeze their scraps to avoid smell in a small Tupperware in their freezer, then transport to 5 gallon bucket. Others use baking soda.
