Spin Bin Compost Barrel

Posted on by .

Spin Bin 60 Compost BarrelFeaturing construction made from 100-percent recycled plastic, the Spin Bin Compost Barrel has one of the best compost system designs available. That comes from the total of 20 ventilation slots built into the design.

The increased airflow this produces allows for faster decomposition resulting in faster compost production. The internal heat generated speeds up the time between loading and harvesting.

The Ventilation slots help to keep the mix sweet. If there is insufficient air flow, the mixture gets too wet, and sours. The internal heat generation and good airflow reduces the time required between filling the bin with kitchen scraps and unloading nutrient rich soil made from it.
