I have adapted this idea to fit the type of container I had on hand. I would love to say I thought of it myself, but I must give credit to my friend who has the original, full trash can size.
I decided to use these handy totes that have been with me for years working very hard at storing or moving all my junk. I have two sizes. The large ones are perfect for the longer term compost, where the smaller one works great for compost immediately from the kitchen.
I drilled half inch size holes in the bottom so the worms would feel welcome.
I've had the new compost bins in use for a couple of weeks now and have already gone out and turned one in to another, finding the material is breaking down quickly!
I have positioned the two large ones on top of an already rich soil base (so the worms won't have to go far).
While it's not exactly attractive, it really serves the purpose well and I haven't spent a dime!
The lids on these are perfect because they cover the top and remain water resistant.
I am also using these types of containers with holes for grass clipping and mulch material. I leave the lids off and the water drains out.
What types of containers have you used for composting?
