If you do not have a garden

You can still recycle your kitchen scraps by using a wormery. Some people even use a wormery as well as having a compost bin.

Wormeries can be bought from lots of places including large garden centres, or you can even make your own.

If you have a small garden

Most gardens will take a compost bin as they only take up a small area on the ground.

If you feel that the bins would be too intrusive in a small garden then plant it in a far corner away from the house. Maybe grow a plant up it or in front of it. You'll be amazed how quickly it starts to blend in.
