Fresh Air Kitchen Compost Collector

by Full Circle
    Fresh Air Kitchen Compost Collector by Full Circle

The Odor-Free Kitchen Compost Collector

Unlike sealed compost containers, the Fresh Air allows oxygen to easily flow through your organic kitchen waste, allowing for aerobic breakdown. This means that food decomposes more slowly and stays drier during the composting process. The result? Less mess, less odor and no flies.

Full Circle Fresh Air Compost Collector is AEROBIC Decomposition

- oxygen enters through the unique wind-glum system
- the unique design prevents build-up of liquids
- garbage remains dryer, breaking down with less mess and odor

Sealed Container Compost Collectors use anaerobic decomposition:
- oxygen cannot penetrate the seal
- liquids in the garbage remain trapped and cannot evaporate
- garbage decomposes too rapidly, resulting in bacteria growth, a rancid smell, and flies
- expensive filters are usually required which do little to prevent odors

What's so great about composting?

For starters, there really is nothing better for soil than compost. It not only loosens clay soils, but it helps sandy soils retain water. And best of all, it contains no petroleum-based compounds, as many commercial fertilizers do. Gardens that use compost produce much higher yields of healthy fruits, vegetables and flowers.

Plus, landfills across the United States are running out of space. In fact, according to a recent EPA estimate, almost a quarter of the garbage in this country is composed of food scraps and yard trimmings. Believe it or not, that's about 60 million tons every year. So if you're not composting yet, it's definitely time to start.

What if I don't have a yard? Maybe you live in a city apartment or in a home without a yard. Our cities are getting more progressive every day, and it's more than likely that yours has a community composting center. Check out Earth911.com or the EPA for local resources in your area.

How to Use the Full Circle Fresh Air Kitchen Composter

Use only compostable bags with the Full Circle Fresh Air. Regular plastic bags do not allow the Fresh Air Compost Container to work its magic. (Look for the ASTM 6400 certification on the boxes.)

Interior Shot of the Full Circle Fresh air Kitchen Composter

Place the bag inside the Fresh Air and snap the wire rim securely. The snap insures that the bag won't slip down and create a mess as the bag gets filled over several days.

Collect kitchen scraps and organic waste throughout the week.

When the bag is full, lift the rim to release the bad, tie it and thrown in your compost pile or city green bin. I keep my Fresh Air in the sink, so after tying, I set it on a dish towel to absorb any wetness that accumulated on the bag from kitchen sink splashes. At first I thought the bag leaked, but the Fresh Air is open on the bottom, so the bag got wet from assorted clean-ups I did prior to removing the bag. If you keep yours on the countertop, you won’t have any wetness on the bag’s exterior.

After removing the bag and tying it off, install a fresh bag. Occasionally you will want to clean the entire Fresh Air unit. It snaps apart easily with the lid and wire lifting off the top and the bottom snapping out with the push of buttons on each side of the unit. Everything goes into the dishwasher to sanitize the entire unit when needed.

IMPORTANT: Compostable bags are designed to degrade like the food they contain. The process begins when the bag comes in contact with the organic materials place inside it, becoming weaker over time. So, when you remove and carry a bag containing organic material, BE CAREFUL to support the base of the bag to ensure the bag does not rip and dump itself out onto you and the floor! The rate of degradation will speed up or slow down depending on the room temperature. So use a small bowl, paper bag, or towel under the bag on the way to your compost bin. In my case, I have to walk down a carpeted hallway, ride an elevator and walk into the parking area where our community compost bin is located in the recycle room. Needless to say, I don’t want anything dripping on this trek to the compost bin!

HINT: Best to replace composting bags every 3-5 days to prevent bags from dripping or bursting!

How to Disassemble the Fresh Air for the Dish Washer
               Fresh Air Disassembly

Pull the lid portion up and out of the base.

Press the buttons to release the base.
On the back side, press the button to release the base.


Place the Fresh Air pieces in the dishwasher and run the cycle on a regular wash... NOT HOT.

Each Full Circle Fresh Air Kitchen Composter includes 5 compostable bags to get you started.
