Compost bin/pail for kitchen use

nofunlatte | Nov 17, 201305:30 AM     9

Hello, CHers. I've started a compost pile started behind my house. In warmer weather, I usually just put my non-greasy, non-meaty scraps in an old lidded 32-oz. yogurt container until I go outside to dump them onto the pile, usually every day or two. Works wonderfully and the kitchen doesn't smell of food scraps. But with the snow and ice season pending, I'd like something that will hold a little more, since I probably won't want to trudge out there all time. Can I just use a larger lidded container (and keep it in my attached garage, as kitchen counter space is at a premium). Or would it be better if I look into a specialized container with charcoal filters? If the latter, does anyone have recommendations? Thanks!
