Indoors winter composting a worm bin works. I'm still using the same one I purchased 15yrs
ago when I lived in the city. Without worms to digest the vegetable matter I would think it
would stink and take a while to break down. Even so, I did have to toss some bags in the
freezer so the worms could catch up with so much veg matter. Helps if some compostables
is the dry stuff from juicing. Really chopped up.

I had to build a big wooden lidded box for mine with some drilled air holes to keep
the pups out of it.

Lots of DIY worm bin ideas out there.
