I see what you mean... what a pretty garden though & sweet looking dog too!
I would just pop it on a cleared bit of ground, so you're not trying to separate compost from gravel when you want to use it. If it's got a lid it won't be so wet & don't imagine there'd be too much gunge leaking out!
Grass cuttings can be a bit slimy if there's too much, but brilliant if mixed with other things so paper would be a good idea. You're looking to get a roughly 50/50 mix of green and brown waste, green = grass, plant & kitchen waste, brown = card, paper & twiggy stuff. I don't think about it much, i just know that along with grass & kitchen waste I add loo & kitchen roll tubes, egg boxes, bits of waste and shredded paper .... just mix a bit so it doesn't form a big dry clump and don't worry about getting green and brown ration exact.
