Adding Coffee grounds to my compost!

One day as I was making dunkin donuts pumpkin spice coffee at home I realized the coffee grounds would be great for my compost bin. Since it is a lot colder out and I only use a little amount of coffee grounds a day I set up a little system.

I simply took an old coffee can and labeled "coffee grounds for compost".  Then slowly everyday I would add the coffee grounds to fill the can. It's perfect because the can doesn't take up space and contains any smell the grounds would emit! Plus I'm not walking in the cold to empty the grounds directly into the compost bin everyday but only when the can is filled!

The best thing is I'm providing more for my compost, recycling the use of a old coffee can and not producing any trash when I make a cup of coffee!!
