    Waste bin for used ground coffee.

    Does anybody know of a bin, possibly with an inbuilt drainer for used ground coffee?

    Thanks.

    Mine go straight into my compost bin, or under one of my ericaceous plants.

    Why do you want to save them?

    Because of the leakage from the dispenser to the bin, just wanted something to go at side of the machine and empty after making the coffee's and eliminating coffee trails on the floor. Did read about composting it, is it OK just to sprinkle on any soil?
    Thanks.

    Have seen a few named "knock boxes" but don't look too striking.

    ​the knock boxes are ok for when the coffee is dry, but if you "knock" the coffee out when wet (or just after using it), it tends to go everywhere. Knock when dry, spoon when wet.

    ​Yes, any soil is fine, the worms love it, and ants and slugs hate it.

    It will increase the acidity of soil if used in the same place frequently.
