Tumbling Composter
Compost your kitchen and yard waste the environmentally safe way. The Upcycle Composter is an upcycled food grade barrel. It is about 4 foot tall and only requires a 3 foot by 4 foot area. This is a lower cost alternative to our standard Tumbling Composter. It is designed for the homeowner who wants to learn the basics of composting with a minimal amount of cost. This composter can be used as a stand alone compost bin or it can be used as a feeder bin for the Tumbling Composter. The best garden tools are those that fit your style. If you prefer to work at waist level, this compost maker is perfect. This Compost Bin is fully assembled.

The three main ingredients that a composter needs is heat, oxygen, and moisture. The best position to place your composter is in full sun or at a minimum partial sun. The barrel holds the heat in all night and does not allow it to cool down like an open bin or stacking bin. The black barrel will absorb heat all day. Holes are drilled in the side to allow oxygen into the barrel. The most efficient bacteria, called "aerobes", need oxygen to do their work. Without oxygen, they cannot survive and anaerobes can take over. Anaerobic bacteria isn't very good at breaking down compost - those bacteria can slow decomposition down by as much as 90 percent.
