High moisture content of kitchen waste makes it unsustainable for it to be transported and incinerated. In comparison, composting at home is a much more sustainable option, upcycling waste into rich compost odourlessly. However, it is inaccessible for apartment dwellers in urban areas in the Netherlands due to space limitations. Vermicomposting...
