Composting allows you the opportunity to turn your yard waste and kitchen scraps into something useful > rich garden soil! This is a form of recycling that can be done from beginning to end in your own backyard. Backyard compost bins turn vegetative kitchen scraps, coffee grinds, tea bags, grass clippings, brown leaves, and dead garden plants into nice crumbly compost. This compost can be used in your vegetable and/or flower gardens.
With ease of use and dependability in mind, the Earth Machine™ was designed to keep moisture in and unwanted critters out. The Earth Machine’s attractive round design creates optimum composting conditions; no corners for materials to dry out. The locking lid is rodent resistant and prevents the lid from blowing away in strong winds. It has a convenient door for harvesting compost. Plus the entire unit can be easily lifted off the compost pile for complete mixing and turning of the pile.
Features of the Earth Machine™ include:
- Large Capacity (80 gallon or 10 cubic feet)
- Made from recycled plastic
- Easy snap together assembly
- Fits in any car
- Durable and lightweight design
- Each compost bin comes with a free composting information book
