What are the advantages to having a lift lid on my organics container?

Take the ick factor out of centralized organic collection with the Vented Lift Lid. Not only will you not have to see your collection contents, but with our optional vented lid you won’t have to smell them either. Thanks to an activated charcoal filter, odors will be absorbed and unwanted smells eliminated!

Why would I want a filter on my organics lift lid?

Composting can be a smelly endeavor if you don’t have a filter on your organics container. Thanks to the activated charcoal filter on our Lift Lids, odors are absorbed and unwanted smells are eliminated.

How often should I replace the carbon filters?

Please remember to change your filters every 3-4 months! It’s not that it’ll be devastatingly smelly after that time; it just won’t be as nice as a fresh one.

Yes, it is possible to include drain holes on select products! Please contact a sales representative via phone or email for further inquiries.
