Product Overview

Create an environmentally friendly, economic composting system with Greenes Composting Bins. These cedar bins allow you to turn household waste into a natural food for your lawn, garden, and flower beds. Simply layer greens (such as vegetable and fruit peelings, coffee grounds, tea bags, and grass clippings) and browns (such as eggshells, cardboard, corncobs, and cotton towels) and allow materials to begin to compost. The bins' open design makes it easy to turn the pile every two to three weeks with a shovel or pitchfork to aerate the product and speed up the breakdown process. Depending on the climate and the mix of materials, your compost will be ready to use in 3 to 12 months. To keep a continuous supply, create a multi-bin system with our add-on kits; after one bin is full and the materials have begun to break down, simply move them to the next bin and begin the process again in the first bin. A three-bin system will keep the process moving seamlessly. Greenes composting bins are available in 36 in. x 36 in. x 31 in./23.25 cu. ft. and include 4 posts, 28 boards, and 48 spacers. Cover with a tarp or plywood (not included) if desired.
  • Standard kit includes 4 posts, 28 boards, and 48 spacers
  • Made from naturally rot- and insect-resistant cedar
  • Assembles with only a rubber mallet
  • Easy to add new material and remove finished product
  • Forms a 2 or 3 bin composting system with purchase of Greenes add-on kits

Questions & Answers


Can this be used to hide an air conditioner on a patio?

Asked by yardwork77 July 26, 2020

Possibly, I'd check on the dimensions first. there are two sizes so you should make sure to get one that fits. Must say I'd not thought of that - seems like a good idea! You might want to check the cables tho and you'd have to put extra spacers for the cable access. Ours seemed to have extra spacers included so it should work.

what is the length of the boards. how long and how high is the bend when put together.

The cedar is untreated cedar wood and can be treated with the product of your choice.

ease of assembly

Asked by val May 27, 2019

Yes. I only needed a rubber mallet to assemble. Took my about an hour, including having to take a few boards off when I missed placing a spacer.

How hard is it to get the planks out after they are put in place?

Asked by NM April 13, 2019

Very easy. If one side sticks, just wiggle it a bit or use a rubber mallet.

Asked by kh March 17, 2019

We bought ours a few weeks ago, but waited for a dry sunny day (today) to assemble. Each slat is 3' long and about 3.5 inches wide and 3/4 inch thick. They are shaped to fit nicely into the grooves along the sides. It took us about 35 minutes to choose our spot and complete it. Easy! And, no it doesn't have a bottom. But, you probably would want the beneficials underground to be able to access the contents of the pile, right? It would not be too difficult to use a weed barrier under it if for some reason you needed one.

What are the dimensions of the boards?

Asked by flancisco March 11, 2019

The boards are about 36 in. long x 3/4 in. wide.

can i grow potatoes in this bin if i dont want to use it for compost

I can recommend it assuming you don't ship an incomplete package, again. I like the product and had bought raised beds previously. Easy assembly, but unfortunately my package came short seven (7) boards. I did not count the content prior to assembling, and it is not worth dis-assembling to mail back. Hopefully they will ship me an additional 7 boards. Please.............

Hey everyone! I ended up getting this unit plus the two add ons. I started off with one bin because I was worried from reading other reviews that some of the pieces were difficult to fit together, and wanted to see how things went before committing. Overall, this was a breeze to put together, and I actually enjoyed the process! I did not even use my rubber mallet on the first two compost bins. The trick is to slide the side-boards down very slowly and evenly, otherwise they will catch. I recommend wearing good quality gloves because splinters will be a problem if you don't. I used garden gloves with rubber palms. I also recommend building it in the spot you plan to use it. It can be moved fairly easy but the bottom slats tend to slide out if it's lifted because they are not nailed or glued to the posts. However, once it's in it's resting place, it's quite sturdy. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I noticed a quality control issue while building the last compost bin. I think one of the posts was not routed straight and the side-boards were a little more difficult to maneuver. That said, it was nothing the rubber mallet couldn't handle, and I'm glad I had one handy. Because of covid-19, I decided to pick the item up at Home Depot and used their "curbside pickup" for the first time. It was a piece of cake and saved me $50 on a delivery fee. The packages are medium-sized, and were loaded into the back of my car for me. I hope this review helps you make a decision one way or the other. I believe this item will last a long time, and would definitely buy it again.

awesome composter
Super easy to put together, compost gets plenty of airflow, and it looks really nice in my yard. I was using plastic trash bins with holes drilled in them but they were so ugly and inefficient. I’m so happy I spent the money on these cedar composters and I highly recommend them!

I have a mixed review. I ordered 5 of these in two separate orders a month apart. The product attractive and is easy to assemble. Unfortunately there was a problem with each order. In both cases the wood components were not made correctly, a different component in each order. This forced me to call Green's Fence Company's customer service twice. In both cases their customer service was great and immediately FedExed me replacement parts. So I have mixed feelings. The product and customer service is good, but the quality control of the product coming out of the factory is poor.
