Thanks for your question.
Your bokashi kitchen composter should not be exposed to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight. Room temperature is ideal for the kitchen composter. The airtight design of our bins mean that there is no odor when the lid is sealed or problems with pests.
Your bokashi bucket should be fine in your garage and on your patio during most of the year. Be careful to keep it out of direct sun and ensure that the temperature remains close to room temperature. This may mean that you want to bring it in over the colder winter months (depending on your local climate).
