Cheap and hip would be a $3 empty paint can from a paint store. Has a handle and a lid, very mod.

We vermicompost all kinds of stuff and never have critter problems... or didn't, until the rats chewed their way into the bins. Sigh.

I have plastic buckets (no lids) and compost bins. Dump the stuff once a week or so and cover it with leaves or shredded paper (used to bring home coffee grounds from w*rk).

Got a big enamel cooking pot with lid from the thrift store. Three bucks, doesn't absorb smells, and is "camoflaged" in the kitchen -- looks like it belongs there.
