We use an old ice cream container. Just wash it every time.
That's exactly what we use!

I found the green bins too big.
The ice cream container is small enough to need emptying more frequently and it goes in the dishwasher when there's space in the load.

Been there, done that - actually works nice. And, as it is an icecream container, it also sits in a freezer while not in use almost naturally. It completely solves the smell and the fruit flies problems, bad adds some other.

Just once my OH spotted a treasure box during the day and forgot about the repurposing thing going on, so in the evening she was genuinely disappointed with the lack of the icy delight. I was sent to one late night working shop at the BH, because "it was totally my fault".

Re: How to use compost bags?

Yeah, this ice-cream-container-idea is nice, simple, airtight. Good thought, will adopt it too.
