Our double bin Compost Tumblers are the perfect answer to composting garden (and kitchen) waste in a small space.

Key to efficient and fast composting is aeration, heat, and moisture. Aeration is easily accomplished because all you have to do is turn the tumbler using the built-in hand grabs, and the shape of the container and the internal vanes help break up the compost as it drops from one side to the other, thus introducing more air into the mix.

Further, there are 2 separate chambers, so you do not need to wait for one batch to finish before starting a new one!

Our Compost Tumblers are black, a color that readily absorbs heat from the sun (which makes it compost faster), and if you occasionally add a little water to keep the mixture slightly moist, you’ll have compost in no time! And if you put a container underneath when you add the water, you’ll get a liquid fertilizer (although if you do it right, there may be little liquid waste)!!

Getting compost out of the tumbler is easy: just turn it so the doors are facing down, and open them up! You could also use a small trowel. The access doors are easily opened/closed (but not by animals), and as an added benefit, the totally enclosed container keeps out rodents and other pests.

The Composter capacity is approximately 43 gallons, and it comes with a compost thermometer!!

One Compost Tumbler will compost waste from a small garden, but if you have a larger garden, or plan on compostng your grass clippings and other landscape clippings as well, we’d recommend you get at least two tumblers.

To help the Compost Tumbler weather freezing temperatures better, we strongly recommend completely emptying the barrel in the late fall.

Easy to assemble, but take your time!
