Wire, plastic and wood compost bin , open or enclosed ,
made for continuous addition of composting materials. Open style garden composting bins open to the environment allow for large yard materials to be
placed in them. Compost tools make regular aeration for optimum performance less difficult. For family outdoor use a small composter
enclosed on the sides and top, and open on the bottom so it sits
directly on the ground are practical and suggested for
residential use in areas where composter barrel tend to be small and enclosed to
discourage pests. The rotating composter
maintain relatively high temperatures
because the container acts as insulation and the turning keeps
the microbes aerated and active, which speeds up
the decomposition process, making natural organic chemical - free fertilizer faster. Kitchen scraps,leftovers,indoor plant bio-waste are stored using an indoor compost bin to be transferred outdoors.
