Store your compost bin in the freezer. :) We do that, on its own shelf - no more bugs!

Aren't you acting against the whole compost part then?

The point is to have bugs and so on decompose what's in the compost bin, as far as I know.

I think we're talking about different things. I meant my own organic waste bin, which gets emptied into the Green Bin: http://www.toronto.ca/greenbin/index.htm

Not really - a lot of composting is just so the compost stuff doesn't go in the trash. We empty the frozen bits out into our yard clippings container every couple of weeks, and then the waste management people pick that up alongside the garbage.

Wouldn't this retard the composting?

Plenty of time for your food scraps to compost after they're out of your house.
