Over the past few years we’ve salvaged from skips, scrounged, been given, or even bought (just the one, as it happens) a handy selection of plastic compost bins. Here’s the current line-up:
From L to R there’s our general purpose ‘chuck it in quick’ bin, the new ‘Super Composter’ hot composting bin that we’re trialling this year for the folks at SoilFixer, the ‘control’ bin that I’ll be using in the Super Composter trial, the bin that I’ve filled with leafy wood-chip to rot down and use as a growing mulch in a year or two, and the turf-stack bin that I use as a dump for any grass that I’ve had to lift from paths or areas where it’s snuck back in.
Not shown are the two timber and chicken-wire compost bays into which we chuck everything for an initial rot-down before it goes into one of the bins.
How about you? What’s your composting setup like? Tell me about it, via the comments.
