Q:How late ng does it take for the compost to be ready
by|Apr 4, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  I haven't used this item, but the time it takes to finish can vary a ton. If you mix the correct ratio of greens and browns and can get the pile to heat adequately then you can finish compost in about 8 weeks. Most people it takes longer .

      Answer This Question

      A:  No bottom to the bin - it is exposed (open) to the ground.

        A:  Yes, there is a drawer you can pull out to get the compost. Be sure to purchase a turner. It is like a pitchfork with a long handle.

          A:  No bottom, it just has a piece of mesh to put under it. That's ok until stirred up the compound, then the mesh got hung up on my stirring tool.

              A:  I had mice in mine. They came in through the ground so I put hardware cloth underneath and that solved the problem.

                  A:  I believe pests could get in through the tray near the bottom. I composite vegetables and fruit scraps and have not noticed a lot of pests but my unit is far away from the house.

                    A:  Good Morning Semi, This is a wonderful question! Yes, our compost bin design helps protect from pests from coming in. The lid locks securely to help ensure racoons or squirrels are not knocking the lid over and entering. The compost bin door really helps as well to keep them out. As for underground and burrowing critters, if you would like an additional component that goes along with our Compost Bins, we have a mesh screen base that further secures the composting materials from rodents. I have pasted the link with our EWC-36 Compost Bin combined with the mesh base. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Enviro-World-82-gal-Compost-Bin-with-Base-EWC-36/205957872 You can also purchase directly from us as well for $15 plus shipping.

                      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!

                      Easy and durable
                      Just take it out of the box, plop in place and you're ready to make compost. I was pleasantly surprised by its sturdiness.

                      This is nice and big. I wish there was a way to lock the lid on. On a blustery day, it blows off. Also, when I am turning the compost, the back tends to raise up off the ground (even though it is staked down) which is annoying.
