No Bin System
This is the cheapest form of composting and is great if you have lots of yard trimmings
and a moderate to large area to locate your pile. This method can attract animals that
are likely to scavenge the pile. An open pile should be covered during prolonged
rainy weather and during the winter.
Multi Bin System
This system is efficient allowing you to have 3 working piles at different stages
of decomposition.These bins are easy to turn and harvest final compost.
They can also be made animal resistant.
Tumbler or Spinner
Self-contained barrels or drums that rotate make mixing and fast decomposition easy.
These bins are typically more expensive than other systems but can be more
convenient because they are easier to turn. They are also a good solution for small
spaces and are usually animal resistant.
Vermicomposting (Worm) Bins
Worm composting is unique because it uses food scraps only and no yard waste.
It is a great solution for people with small yards, or no yard. Worm composting bins
can be made in any size or can be purchased. Worm bins are designed to exclude
critters that might be attracted to food scraps. A successful worm bin will not smell, and
can be harvested every few months and can be kept indoors or outdoors during the warmer months.
