Will the organics smell?
Organics will smell the same as your household trash. Remember, it is the same waste you have now, just separated into containers.

To minimize odors, remember to put in food-soiled paper products or line your container with a paper bag to absorb liquid from food waste, line your container with a compostable plastic bag to contain liquid, empty your container frequently and rinse it out occasionally.
