An easy way to collect the pulp created with a Green Star Juicer
The procedure is simple and uses any plastic bags with handles that you get at most stores when you purchase something.
When you start juicing position your juice pitcher so you get the initial drops that come out of the front spout. If you do this so the front edge of the pitcher will barely catch the drops you should get little pulp in your pitcher. You can also just waste the initial juice from the front spout.
Once pulp starts to come out turn off the juicer and throw the pulp in the bag.
Pull off the safety tray (should be used with plastic plunger as it prevents it from being ground into your juice) and the top of the feeder chute.
Put the opening of bag over the entire front of the machine making sure you have covered the pulp discharge spout.
Put the handles around the base of the feeder chute.
Insert a twist wrap between the bag and the top of the machine near the front of the machine and bring the bag together. This will secure the bag in place.
To remove bag:
Remove the top off the safety tray and the feeder chute.
Pull the bag handles straight up and the forward toward the front of the juicer. The bag should come off with no mess.
If it is not full you can use it again. Just put it aside but the pulp will get moldy rather rapidly so do not keep it around for more than a few days at most.
I use the pulp for fertilizer. We have not done any research on the value of this practice but the bush that got the most pulp grew more than usual.
