    This unobtrusive recycled plastic composter is an easy way to turn kitchen scraps and other organic waste from your home into fertilizer for your garden. The low price point makes it one of our best values.

    Don't miss the video at the bottom of the page!

    The durable design of this compost bin makes it an efficient composter for kitchen scraps and yard waste. The large lid, oversized handle, and 4 sliding access panels (one on each side) make it easy for any gardener to start composting. As the organic material decomposes, you simply open any one of the sliding panels and shovel out your rich, high-quality compost.

    See our entire selection of composters.

    Don't forget to check out our compost turning tool to keep your compost well mixed and aerated. Our compost turning tool is much easier to use than a common pitch fork for mixing compost.

    Add the optional compost aerator to help turn your compost.

    Recycled Plastic Compost Bin Features and Benefits:

  • Requires no tools for assembly, so you can start composting in a matter of minutes.

  • Holds more than 12 cubic feet of material (approximately 90 gallons), which is plenty of room for several bags of leaves, grass clippings, kitchen scraps, etc.

  • The extra-large lid allows you to add lots of organic material at once. This also helps with watering and mixing the compost.

  • Features 4 sliding panels so you can easily take out the compost with a shovel.

  • Opened bottom compost bin. This lets the liquid compost tea that comes from the compost seep into the soil where the bin is located, improving the soil in the area around where you've set up the composting unit.

  • Wide air slots for proper air circulation and efficient decomposition of organic waste.

  • Dimensions: 87 centimeters tall x 75 cm wide x 75 cm deep (the approximate size in inches is 33" h x 28.5" w x 28.5" d)

  • Comes with easy to assemble instructions.

  • Made from 100% recycled polypropylene plastic.

  • The dark color soaks up sunlight and maintains a warm operating temperature for accelerated results.

    The polypropylene plastic that's used in this composter is unusual. Unlike type 1 plastic (PETE) or type 2 plastic (HDPE), Polypropylene (type 5 plastic) usually ends up in the landfill rather than being recycled into new products. There isn't much demand for recycled polypropylene - it's primarily used to make bottle caps and drinking straws, and those can't be made from recycled plastic for sanitary reasons. By purchasing products made with recycled polypropylene, you can help prevent unnecessary waste and create market demand that encourages more people to recycle.

    If your compost dries out too quickly, you can help keep moisture inside by adding Coir to the compost mix. By using a good mix of dry and wet ingredients, you can accelerate the process of turning trimmings and kitchen scraps into healthy soil!

    I got this to replace my dearly beloved 18 year old bin that had been smashed to smithereens in our ice storm in Jan. It is easy to set up and works well. A bolt was missing but it was easy to find one in same size (for 8 cents) at local home store. Two minor quibbles. There are no air slots above the bottom of the barrel which makes it a little less speedy than my previous one and the lid does not have a latching mechanism so I had to put a rock on top for strong winds. A very nice feature is the 4 bottom dorrs. Definitely worth the price!

    Good, big, simple to assemble. Nice big lid, easy to lift and replace.
    Ours only had sliding panels on 2 of the 4 sides, but that is enough.
