Yeah but the big problem with that is it implies NB members are eager to 
do the 'hard' labour such as cleaning the kitchen in an active rather 
than passive manner. Besides, the flies are finding their way in from 
the front (supposedly unsanitary conditions in the grocery store next 
door; don't get anything towards the ground there?)  so we'd still need 
something a bit more sophisticated to deal w/ the airflow, except w/ a 
seal.  If NB's gonna be heated this winter, this can actually be done 
passively by simply cracking a kitchen window by a centimeter & placing 
the bucket below it.

I'm totally up for the biocompostable bag thing though.
