Hi I am going to start a flower garden soon and figured I would try to start a compost bin. Except I would be using something smaller like a tupperware. Because of the limited space I figure I'll only use a few things that I'll continually add to it like egg shells, tea bags, fruit peels and coffee grinds. Is it also necessary to have something in there such as paper or dried leaves? Any help would be great, thanks.

@JD3P,
Vermicomposting (a worm bin) is great if you have limited space:
