There are lots of compost bins you can buy at the store that feature tight-fitting lids, integrated carbon filters (to absorb odors) and pretty designs so they look good on your kitchen countertop. Instead of buying one, you can always repurpose an old stock pot into a compost bin. A stainless steel one works best, since it can be washed easily, but any pot with a tight lid will work and keep odors and insects away. If you don't have one, there are plenty of used pots at any thrift store that will work, too.
