UpperSpoon I agree composting in winter is very difficult. I would usually keep it outside but at the moment it is just under my sink, not ideal.

3. Here is a list of places in Pennsylvania that will accept compost scraps: http://files.dep.state.pa.us/Waste/B...Facilities.pdf . Call first, to make sure they'll accept food scraps.
This was very helpful, Thank you so much

I do a lot of juicing and eat lots of bananas and other fruits. I hate just to throw them in our trashcan. Would it be possible to compost some how?
tips? ideas? suggestions?
Thanks!

Tom Have you tried contacting your local Cooperative Extension, or maybe whatever government agency handles that kind of waste? The Department of Environmental Conservation in New York State has information about composting, but I don't know that it's a good idea to do it indoors. Do you have room anyplace outside? Most people compost outdoors year-round.

I'd suspect that if you have room in your garage, but noplace else outside to do it, that would be your best bet. I suppose you'd need some sort of container or bin that would not dribble stuff out onto the garage floor and cause stains.
