Place the trowel and a few sheets of newspaper near the bin. If there’s room, store the bag of potting soil near the bin as well. 4. Before adding fruit or vegetable scraps to the bin, be sure the pieces are smaller than 2 inches (5 cm) across. The smaller the pieces, the faster they will break down. Then carefully stir the contents of the bin with the trowel.
