Composting is a form of biological digestion that breaks down food and takes weeks or months, not hours or days. Be wary of any claims to the contrary.
The Mill kitchen bin isn’t a composting device. The Food Grounds that come out of the bin are still food, minus the water, bulk, odor, and ick. The bin is designed to conserve all the potential in your kitchen scraps, not break them down, so we can keep them in the food system.
On top of that, we designed the Mill kitchen bin to be so much more practical and convenient than any other way of managing kitchen scraps.
- Large capacity: add kitchen scraps to your bin all day, every day. The bucket can collect dry, compact Food Grounds for weeks without having to be emptied.
- Automatic cycle: the bin runs at a set time every day, zero effort required.
- Odor filtering: the filter is packed with 5 lbs of charcoal and lasts seven - eight months for most households. We’ll let you know when it’s time to replace your filter (included in your service plan at no extra cost).
App: see what’s happening inside your bin, create a custom schedule, and get alerts when there’s something you need to pay attention to. Otherwise, your bin will do its thing.
Impact tracking: see the amount of kitchen scraps you’re adding and learn ways to improve your climate impact over time.
