    This excellent compost bin solves the issue of keeping your compost turned. Throw away your pitchfork, because now you can turn your compost simply by spinning the drum. It is no wonder that it's one of our best selling compost bins.

    Even better, the base of the composter collects liquid, so you can produce 5 gallons of compost tea with no additional effort! Compost tea is full of nutrients, and a great way to perk up everything from vegetables to flowers to houseplants. You can also configure the base to just drain the liquid into the ground if you prefer. This composter is now only available in black.

    When you are ready to remove finished compost to spread it on your lawn or garden, you can simply roll the tumbler to the area where you want the compost, open the door, and remove the compost from the compost bin. Door now has a new metal locking clip.

    To remove compost tea from the base, you simply roll the compost tumbler away, and then pick up the base and open the drain to pour your compost tea into a bucket, or directly onto your garden or houseplants.

    The base has eight rollers so you can easily spin the tumbler. The composter takes about four to six weeks to create ready-to-use compost under normal conditions, or just two to three weeks in ideal conditions. It can easily handle the amount of organic waste suitable for composting generated by an average family. The composter can produce 450 to 900 pounds of compost per year, and has a volume of 7 cubic feet.

    Yard waste makes up 25 to 50 percent of all municipal waste! Don't throw away material that will help you make the richest, most fertile soil available.

    Envirocycle Composter Dimensions:

    The height of the composter is 29 3/4 inches, length is 26 1/2 inches, and depth 21 inches.

    Envirocycle Compost Tumbler and Compost Tea Maker Capacity:

    Holds 7 cubic feet of materials -- approximately 53 gallons.

    The tumbler is even made of recycled plastic.

    I got this composter over a year ago as a birthday present and I’m very happy with it. It’s easy to use, doesn’t take up too much space, and is very sturdy. I wouldn’t recommend it for someone with a very large yard because it’s on the smaller size, but it’s perfect for a small to medium yard. The rolling barrel design makes it easy to turn the compost, without any mess!

    I have had this for a couple of months and my compost isn’t near completion. I’m not sure why.

    I find it a little heavy to roll, but it is still easier than turning a traditional pile with a pitchfork.

    Probably the best thing about this bin is the compost tea feature.

    We’ve had this composter for almost a year. So far, I’ve gotten 7 loads out of it and at least 10 gallons of tea. We put everything in it (dry leaves, grass clippings, kitchen scraps, coffee grounds and leftover coffee). The plants are very happy!

    I have used this for a year and find it to be good for generating tea but difficult to manage otherwise. When full, for example, it is quite difficult to roll or move. Having said that I have had only one other compost heap and this IS somewhat better than a basic bin. However for $159, one expects something special.

    The door break very easily with any use, so plan on fixing it with a drill and pieces of wire.

    For the money, I’d say look for a more traditional unit.

    My first batch of compost eventually shaped up and was wonderful - black, crumbly, just like it is supposed to be! The most recent commenter and I shared a problem -- it is hard to turn when it is full. The directions say you should only fill it about halfway. It is MUCH easier to turn when only partially filled, and the compost is ready much faster. I keep a wire bin to throw new compost materials in while I compost small batches one at a time in this. It works great!!

    Like another reviewer said, its great for generating tea but otherwise it didn’t meet my needs. My property doesn’t have a lot of deciduous trees- lots of sweet Georgia pine! Also, I leave grass clippings on the lawn (when I cut it with my Clean-Air purchased reel mower!). So the only stuff going in there was kitchen waste. This putrified (great for tea) and smelled really gross (bad for deck enjoyment). Also, I turned it faithfully but one night after a freeze, the mostly-liquid contents froze into a block. When I went out to give ’er a spin the durn thing spun right back, flung open the trap door and barfed a load of guck on me from head to toe! I smelled like a latrine. Possum loved it but wife was turned off. I sold it to a friend with more nitrogen-producing landscape and now just put out our salad rejects for Mr. Possum. My friend loves it and possum looks fat and happy.

    We purchased 10 weeks ago, followed ALL instructions, and all we have is smelly poop-like mud. False advertisement re: Black gold in 6 weeks - yeah right!! Poorly built door with latch sometimes opens on you when tumbling - nice touch engineers! I suggest a traditional one next time. NOT worth the money and hassle!
