    Hi Ya, Well did some research and it would seem the majority of modern inks are naturally based flower/veg etc so no worries there. The glues seem to bbe of the same. I looked up storage buckets on line and they are freely available but talking to a mate who suggested trying restaurants who probably use the buckets like yours that hold beans etc so I will keep my eyes open now and see where we go. I use them like you to store my stuff for composting and seeing your set up has given me more info and I will do the same as adding to the bin a good load in one go is better than little by little. I mix weeds and leaves and fresh horse manure into mine as well. So opens a new way forward. Thanks to all

    They come from the local Pizza shop they just throw them away so are happy for me to take some every now and then. I have amassed quite a collection and use them for storage of all manor of things including coir, coffee, cut up cardboard, spent hops etc.
