This has quickly become our favorite compost tumbler! It will take you about 10 or 15 minutes to fully assemble it, using only your hands and a pocket screwdriver.
The vertical tumbling action of the patented Tumbleweed Composting Tumbler Bin, designed with a stainless steel rod running through the center, creates an aerobic action that offers a quick and odorless form of composting.
It also has sturdy, galvanized tubular steel legs that won't rust that hold up the composter. The steel in these legs is made with recycled metal (as available). The recycled content varies between 17 and 20 percent. The Tumbleweed compost maker bin is now in BLACK and made of 100% recycled material.

To start composting, just throw some material into the Tumbleweed compost bin and give it a spin. This tumbling composter is easy to spin. As the composter fills and gets heavy, you can push down on one side and pull up on the other and still make it tumble without much effort at all.
We were impressed the way the stainless steel rod through the center helped quickly break down the material in the composter with just a few turns, improving the already good compost tumbling action. Many people prefer tumbling compost bins because the design makes it easy to turn and aerate the compost. A well-aerated bin helps break down materials into finished compost faster.

Spin daily, and you'll have earthy dark brown compost in as few as 21 days. Your specific composting time depends on your mix of materials, moisture of the compost, weather, etc. For the best composting results, we suggest using 75% dry ingredients (leaves, grass clippings, shredded newspaper) and 25% moist waste (vegetable scraps, dead flowers, etc). The composter will work with any blend of organic materials, but it may take longer to complete the breakdown process.
The tumbling composter comes with complete instructions on how to make compost.
The tumbling compost bin has two animal-resistant twist lock vented lids at both ends that allow for easy filling and emptying of the bin while producing maximum aeration.
Constructed from heavy duty UV-protected polypropylene plastic, the assembled bin stands 46" high, 26" wide, 34" deep. The compost bin has a 58 gallon capacity (measured as 7 to 8 cubic feet, or approximately 6.2 bushels.) It weighs only 22 lbs when empty, so it is easy to move around the yard.
