INDOOR worm bin? Hmmmm... I have a feeling this would not work very well for us for multiple reasons. I do like where you're going with this though! I'll be honest, I considered the possibility of doing some composting on a SMALL scale inside a plastic tote using worms (outside though). However... I remember once upon a time when my son wanted to raise worms and how stinky all those dead dried out worms got. Yeah... I best not even attempt it! LOL! At least at the moment, I've got enough on my plate for now. I WILL keep that in mind though for the future!
Haha, I should have clarified by writing "a properly managed indoor worm bin." :) Situated ideally in a laundry room, closet, etc. or wherever there's space out of the way. Personally I would be more inclined to have one outside, but I know that plenty of people with no other option keep them in small apartments and such. I can't see how it would be any more noxious than the covered scrap bin we keep in our kitchen right next to the sink and empty when full--if anything, less so--or the "sawdust potty"-style composting toilet that gets emptied once a week, but which if you walked into our house you'd never know was there till you parted the cute little curtain my wife sewed separating the bathroom from the living room. If you put too much in a worm bin at once, or forget to feed or water it and wind up with dead worms rotting in there I can imagine it might smell, but a well-maintained worm bin generally doesn't. With these sorts of systems it's all about how it's managed. Of course maybe not for everyone, but pretty cool stuff knowing the options out there!
