Here is a helpful suggestion for optimizing use of your Earth Tub composter. I always recommend adding fresh food scraps on the opposite side of the tub from the discharge door. It takes days (or even weeks) for material to move from one side of the Tub to the other. That way, the freshest material is always farthest from the discharge door. When you unload the tub, the freshest material will then be the last thing you remove. If you get to a point where you are seeing food waste in the compost you are removing, you can stop and leave that material in the tub until it is fully composted.
