Composting Equipment? Tue, 01/14/14 5:19 PM (permalink)
I work at a restaurant that is about to begin participating in a composting program. In addition to big compost bins, we want to get some small composting buckets or pails for around the BOH. We're looking at the pretty standard green ones, like the ones here:

I have a pretty basic question though: are these pails strong enough to withstand being washed in a commercial-grade dishwasher? Anyone have any experience with this?

    I'm sure they are...BUT what I would recommend (and we always do this to see what people are wasting in the kitchen) is to use the large, clear lexan Cambro containers as "waste" buckets.  That way you can make sure you're only getting the food wastes that you need and can see that people aren't A)wasting anything they shouldn't be B) being mindful about what they put in there.  Then you can just dump them into your larger bin and call it a day
