urban composting

It seems silly not to compost yard waste and simple kitchen scraps, but I haven't the slightest clue where to start. I am trying to do this on a budget so don't want to spend the $100+ on a nice looking container, but at the same time don't want it to look ugly or cause a stink since the space is limited. I really would like a sturdy plastic container that is small enough to tuck away in the corner.

I saw this and am thinking of going for it even if it is $80. Seems like it might be the best solution.

Does anyone have any advice? Resources that might be handy? Experience composting in a small space?

I'm penciling in this workshop from the Queens Botanical Garden for September 19th to answer all my questions:
