    Here is a simple, but extremely effective big, round compost bin. It holds an impressive 18 cubic feet of materials, which is about 50% larger than most other bins. With such a large capacity and low price, it is one of our best value composters.

    Not sure which composter is right for you? Check out Composter Reviews: Lars's Quick Picks.

    So feel free to throw in leaves, grass clippings, food scraps and everything else you can think of! You'll have a hard time filling this one up, and an even harder time keeping it full as it quickly breaks down materials into rich compost.

    Constructed from 100 percent post-consumer HDPE black plastic with ultra-violet light inhibitors to prevent fading.

    See our complete section of compost bins.

    Bin wall is 1/10" thick and forms a hoop 30 inches tall that has a wide open top for easy mixing and aerating with a three foot wide thermoformed lid to protect the contents from animals and excess rain. This composter measures; 30" tall and 36" across for 18 cubic feet capacity.

    Hand holds at three locations around the top allow the unit to be easily lifted off of the working pile. This allows you to move the bin over a few feet and shovel all the materials back in, effectively mixing and aerating your compost. (You can also leave it in place and take out the finished compost through the bottom access gate.)

    Air intakes around the bottom total 135 square inches while solid upper body retains the heat. The bottom gate allows easy access to the richer compost found at the base of the pile. Handle provides easy opening. There are intake slits around the base draw up air through the pile, aiding decomposition.

    The enclosed parts packet includes 4 stainless steel carriage bolts and wing nuts, three holding stakes that hold the bin in place when it is empty, bottom access gate handle, assembly instructions and a Guide to Backyard Composting booklet.

    Assembly time is estimated to be approximately fifteen minutes with no tools required. Steps are: Open the bin to lay flat for a few minutes, form a hoop at the chosen size to insert and hand tighten the four carriage bolts, and locate the three pegs around the base to hold the empty bin in place.

    This design is easy to use, whether you're just starting out with gardening or have decades of experience under your belt. To learn more about how to get the best results, visit the Compost Instructions web site. For example, if your compost dries out too quickly, you can help retain moisture by adding Coir to the compost mix.

    The bin package is shipped with all parts and materials in a 40" long box that weighs 18 pounds.

    I bought this compost bin a few years ago because it was economical. It was difficult to shovel out the compost, the lid didn’t stay on, and mice were soon living in it. Now I’m in the market for a new one that has more staying power.

    This bin is very very flimsy which makes it hard to turn the pile. The lid is constantly flying off in the slightest wind, and getting the compost out is very difficult. Since the walls of the bin are so thing this bin has actually sunk into the ground making the door impossible to open and close with out lifting the bin walls. This bin is not worth the price.

    We’ve had one for 2 years and love it. No bottom means it has become a worm composter - fast and easy. The lid does blow off but an easy solution is to put a log on top. Pretty easy. We’re ordering another because of added gardens.

    I’ve used the stackable square compost bins (too small to heat up well), the small tumbler type (contents became sodden & smelly) and finally this round bin. I find that the pile really heats up nicely and things break down quickly. I put a pretty 6" rock on top to keep the lid from blowing. I don’t have any problem turning the pile but I use a rowing motion, pulling contents from the side to the top. I like the fact that there is no bottom because I can just lift it off when the pile is finished. I am so satisfied with this bin that I’m ordering another one!
