Answer: 
Leaves yes, and small amounts of dried grass. Grass is very rich in nitrogen and mostly water which could make your compost too soggy and slow down the process. It is best to let grass clippings dry out for a couple of days before adding it to your bin.

Answer: 
Yes, the entire lid comes off the compost bin, and the opening is large, so you can dump in grass clippings or leaves. The composter also comes with a brochure explaining best methods of making compost, so if you are new to composting, there is information there (and online) about how to create the best mix of "green" materials, like grass clippings, and "brown" materials, like dried leaves.

82 gal. Enviro World Compost Bin is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really good compost bin This compost bin is a really good buy for someone who does not have a very large yard. It was easy to put together and fits nicely in the corner of my yard. I will say that there are one or two changes I would like to see. The handle on top is smooth and slick. When it is wet, it is hard to grasp and pick up. I would have liked to have seen markings on the top of the bin so one can tell when the top lines up to be opened. I lined the top up and added some white paint -- problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, light, one-piece compost bin I bought this compost bin to replace another multi-piece one that had wrenched apart with the changing temperatures of the seasons. The box is large but fit in the back of a minivan, and the product itself is very lightweight. Anyone can set it up, as there is really no assembly needed except to slide the bottom door into a slot, set the top into two notches and give it a twist, and push four stakes into the ground. Besides the bottom door and the lid, the compost bin is one continuous piece, which should be much more weather resilient. I did think the product was a bit pricey, but if it lasts as I anticipate and I don't have to go through the hassle of finding a new one again and moving compost, it will be worth it. A short instruction booklet is included on what and how to compost. All in all, I am very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good compost bin Very much what you'd expect from a big plastic top loading compost bin. Sturdy with good vent slots on the sides, twist on lid and stakes to secure it to the ground. The lid can get hard to twist if it's muddy, but that's to be expected. Stakes are flimsy, but I haven't had any problems with the bin wanting to tip or lift up. I've found an abundance of worms making their way into the top layers of compost, which is nice. The compost mix takes some muscle to turn, which is typical for this type of bin. Overall a great bin at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Composter I was looking for a one piece composter with no moving or metal parts and this composter fills the bill. It is big and would take forever to fill with only kitchen waste. It will take several months to get into a good compost cycle. If your primary composting goal is kitchen waste get something smaller. This composter has no bottom. That means eventually the soil and composter will become one unit with worms and soil bacteria migrating in. It also means I needed to ensure the composter was well located to prevent rodents from entering, not that they would be a big problem. The hold down stakes were criticized in other reviews, but they are adequate if you tap them down gently and have no rocks where they need to go. They are a square section twisted so they naturally rotate when tapped down, need to plan for this when you start. This will give them a little increased holding power over smooth pegs. Not likely to be bear proof however!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product is remarkably simple. It is essentially an empty, sturdy plastic shell that you can put either on the ground or over a wire mesh (if you are worried about rodents intruding). The bin (which is entirely open on the bottom) attaches to the ground with four simple tent stakes. In the front is a door which slides up and from which you can collect dirt after the composter has done it's thing. The lid on the top is sturdy and secures well to the body of the compost bin. We were set up and composting in minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple to use, compost bin! Great price and simple to use! The bin is made of sturdy plastic and has a very large capacity. The door at the base means that we can harvest some compost while still adding in new material at the top. Our previous compost pile was open and lured raccoons into the area. We added a floor of 1/2 inch hardware cloth and also wrapped a strip of hardware cloth across the larger vents toward the bottom of the bin. The hardware cloth was tied to the vents with wire to secure it. With hungry raccoon in the area, we wanted to prevent them from chewing through the larger vent areas to get a snack. So far nothing as attempted to get into the bin and the bin is composting much faster than any open system!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to Use This compost bin doesn't need any kind of complicated assembly. I thought I wanted a rotating bin, but after reading reviews of them that talked about how hard they were to assemble, parts wearing out, and holes in them attracting lots of flies, I changed my mind when I read reviews of this bin. The bin is large and barely fit in my husband's car when we picked it up from Home Depot, so it would be best to use as SUV or truck to bring it home, but beyond that we have had no problems. The lid fits securely so no animals can get in it, and the bin sits unobtrusively in a corner of our yard. Every week we use a pitchfork to turn the compost, and we use a hose to add some water, and it all seems to be working as it should. We have not had it long enough to use the composted material in the garden yet, but are looking forward to doing so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Compost Bin Bought this for my daughters birthday, yes, her birthday! lol Comes with lid and door in front to easily remove compost from the bottom without lifting the whole bin. I have had one like this in my back yard for at least 10 years. Now she can put her kitchen compostables and garden clippings in. Bin is quite large and comes with stakes to hold it down.
