20+ Best Container Design Ideas For Home

Posted on

Composting containers are receptacles not only for holding compost but for creating the mixture. There are numerous composting containers on the market and with a little research you can find the one that suits your needs best. Compost is a mixture of assorted decaying organic material such as yard waste and kitchen waste for fertilizing the earth and our gardens.

Composting is the safe way of returning organic matter back to the soil and in order to continue this process you are going to need a containment area for maintaining the mixture. There are a few requirements necessary in order for proper decomposition. These include container size, fragment size, green material, dry matter, air, moisture, and heat.

A compost container that is too small will be unable to generate needed heat for decomposing properly. There is a minimum volume of waste that is essential for building up the necessary heat for composting and that is generally 3′ x 3′ x 3′. Sometimes that is possible when you use a smaller insulated wood or plastic container that is capable of holding sufficient heat to decompose the waste.

Continuous composters are enclosed bins for handling a number of divergent materials from yard waste to kitchen scraps. They are classified as ‘continuous’ because organic waste can be added at any time and it decomposes slowly. Finished compost generally filters to the bottom of the container allowing you to remove the finished product several times a year.
