What ever is handy, tupperware, bowl, old icecream container what ever. I like a tight lid although I found fruit flies can somehow still get in there. I do try to empty ever night after dinner mess has been cleaned up.

Ha! for the winter we have a 10 gallon plastic box.

For the summer, just an old coffee can.

Old margarine tub, no lid, try to dump at least once per day or when full.

I have sometimes rinsed it out, but when it gets too gunky we switch tubs. I think I've actually tossed the old one but could probably run it through the dishwasher.

I use to have a nice crock, but since it was ceramic it didn't last long here. Dh broke it, lol.

We use any old bowl we grab. It gets taken out twice daily and rinsed out w/the hose each time. Fruit flies are about to be an issue, so we'll probably start keeping a bucket w/lid on the porch. It will still get emptied daily.

DH wanted something that looked nice, so my Dad bought me this as a housewarming gift: crock

Warning, the shipping was expensive!

I have a dirty 5 gallon pickle bucket that I fill and dump every few days.
