One look at the Envirocycle Mini Composter and we were smitten. Despite being practical gardeners who compost on a fairly large scale we just can’t help but love this little guy. For many people, such as avid gardeners or those with large families, the Envirocycle Mini Composter will be too small to be useful. But we can see this compost tumbler being really popular with a lot of people who are new to composting. This would be one of the best compost bins for those living in a condo or apartment, people living on their own, and for both students and seniors. [...]
The Good Ideas Compost Wizard Jr. is a scaled back version of the original, larger Compost Wizard tumbler, which is a good thing, because we heard from users that when the larger original model was full it became difficult for many people to turn. The Compost Wizard Jr. is a more manageable size and is a much more practical compost tumbler for most people. The Compost Wizard Junior can hold up to 7 cubic feet of material and comes fully assembled. It consists of a large black drum shaped bin that sits horizontally on top of a base. Both the base [...]
You would be hard pressed to find any other commercial compost bin that is as cheap as the Geobin Composting System. This bin is often found for sale on Amazon and other online retailers for between $30 and $45. Now that is really cheap! At those prices I would be tempted to buy two and put them side by side. The Geobin compost bin can hold up to 14 bushels of material (that’s a huge amount of material for a commercial compost bin). The bin is made from lightweight but strong plastic with many ventilation holes to allow an enormous [...]
The Tumbleweed Worm Cafe is a really large worm composting bin. It’s definitely not the most stylish worm bin on the market. In fact, it’s a bit of an ugly duckling, but it’s a solid, practical worm bin that gets the job done as advertised. The Worm Cafe is made from 100% recycled black plastic and has 3 large capacity working trays each with side ventilation. The unit is fitted with a hinged, fly proof lid, with instructions permanently printed on the underside. The lid can be propped open using attached clips to keep it out of the way when [...]
The Earth Machine compost bin has become a kind of classic among compost bins. It’s a real work horse of a compost bin that’s nearly indestructible. I have had one for over a decade and it works just as well as when I first bought it. The Earth Machine has proven itself to the point where it is the most successful bin of its type in the world and is often the brand of compost bin supplied by local municipalities in their composting programs. The Earth Machine bin holds a volume of 10.5 cubic feet (80 imperial gallons or300 litres), [...]
