Can-O-Worms compost bin

I got an almost new compost bin thanks to a friend. Installed in on the balcony. At this point I did not put any worms into it because there is not enough stuff inside, but maybe later. Composting food scraps is hand-in-glove compatible with my other current practice that is a raw food vegan diet. Since most of my garbage is organic, like apple cores and banana peels, the worms are gonna love it.

Now, I will produce almost no garbage. The bulk of my garbage will be paper junk mail which already goes into the recycling bin for resource reclamation, although what happens after it gets collected by the council pickup truck is invisible to me so I can only hope that it is the right thing, sorry I digress. This Can O Worms is gonna be Awesome!
