Dear PoP – Compost Dropoff?

“Dear PoP,

I see these little compost containers in places like Greater Goods on U Street that are designed to hold kitchen scraps in a convenient, non-smelly way until you’re able to drop off the contents at a local compost pile.

I’d really like to buy one of these and reduce the amount of garbage I generate, but I’m not sure where I could drop the scraps. I live on 16th near Dupont.

Any recommendations?”

I thought the purpose of compost was that it is supposed to degrade where it is, no? Anyone have a compost pile? What do you do with the scraps?
