✅ TOP 5: Best Compost Bin 2019


Compost is like gold for your garden, encouraging
healthy growth, strong roots, and bountiful blooms. Plants need vitamins and nutrients for proper
growth just as you do, and compost is like a multi-vitamin for greenery. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best compost bins on the market, we have included links in the description for each
product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your budget
range. Starting off with the best overall compost
bin we have the Yimby Tumbler Composter. Compost tumblers, such as the Yimby Tumbler
Composter, typically resemble a large sideways barrel on a stand. These composters are easy to use, and a great
choice for the gardener who doesn’t have a lot of extra space in the yard. Fill the Yimby with up to 37 gallons of organic
waste and give the barrel five to six spins every two or three days. The tumbling action aerates the compost, breaking
it down more quickly for use in the garden — no need for digging, shoveling, or mixing
the compost by hand. If it’s warm enough, and you’ve balanced your
ingredients properly, you’ll have compost ready for the garden in as little as two weeks. There are two inner chambers in the Yimby,
so you can have two batches of compost in different stages of decomposition going at
the same time. The large door makes it easy to add scraps
and dump out finished compost. The composter is made of BPA-free, UV-inhibited,
recycled polypropylene, so it won’t break down in direct sunlight or leach harmful chemicals
into your compost. The galvanized steel frame is corrosion resistant. With more than 2,000 reviews on Amazon, the
Yimby Tumbler Composter has an average of 4.1 stars, and many rave reviews, including
this one from happy buyer Lorrie: “Overall, this composter is affordable, works as advertised
when used with common sense, easy to tumble, makes beautiful compost, and I would recommend
it as an affordable alternative to the more expensive tumblers.” On the downside, many buyers commented that
the Yimby is somewhat difficult to assemble. Next up we have the best rolling compost bin
which goes to the Envirocycle Tumbler Bin. Rolling composters, such as the Envirocycle
Tumbler Bin, are large plastic balls with a tightly fitted lid. The bin sits on a stand, making it easy to
give it a roll or two each day, thus keeping the compost aerated and circulating for quicker
decomposition. The Envirocycle Tumbler Bin, which bills itself
as, “The most beautiful composter in the world,” comes in two sizes: a 17-gallon bin for smaller
yards and a 35-gallon bin for those with larger gardens. You also get it in black or hot pink. What’s great about rolling compost bins is
that when your compost is completely “cooked,” you simply roll the composter right where
you want the compost, open it up, and dump or shovel the contents around your plants. No need for a bucket or wheelbarrow to transport
the compost. According to Amazon buyers, it’s fairly easy
to roll the Envirocycle even when it’s full. The Envirocycle is made of BPA-free, food-safe
plastic that won’t fade, warp, or crack even in rough weather conditions. A small spigot in the base lets you pour out
“compost tea” to use as fertilizer. Plants love this nutrient-rich liquid product
of compost decomposition. With nearly 600 reviews and an average of
4.5 stars, this is one of the most popular outdoor composters on Amazon, despite the
somewhat high price. Up next we have the best kitchen compost bin
which goes to the SCD Probiotics All Season Indoor Composter Kit. While you can’t complete the full decomposition
cycle indoors, the SCD Probiotics All Season Indoor Composter Kit lets you get a head start
on your compost making, and provides plenty of compost tea, as well. If you simply want an attractive container
to hold food scraps until you have a chance to add them to your outdoor compost bin, the
Erica Stainless Steel Compost Bin is effective and attractive. If you don’t have room for a full-size composter,
or have a very small garden, you might find that the SCD Probiotics All Season Indoor
Composter Kit is all that you need. This anaerobic composter is intended for indoor
use, but don’t worry — It won’t stink up your kitchen, and it fits right under the
kitchen sink. The kit includes a 5-gallon airtight bucket
with a handy spigot for releasing compost tea, but what really sets this system apart
from traditional outdoor composters is the included gallon bag of Bokashi compost starter,
which activates the anaerobic fermentation process. Just drop your food scraps into the bucket,
add a layer of Bokashi, and fasten the lid. The compost will not fully “cook” inside this
composter, however, so when the bucket is full, you’ll need to bury or scatter the contents
in your outdoor garden to finish the composting process. If you are just looking for a convenient,
airtight container to hold scraps until you have a chance to empty them into your outdoor
compost bin, the Erica Stainless Steel Compost Bin looks good enough to keep out on your
counter, has a charcoal filter to prevent odor, and holds up to 1.3 gallons of kitchen
scraps. Next we have the best worm bin composter which
goes to the The Work Factory 360 composter. As with all things, what goes in must come
out, and that’s what makes worm composting — also called vermicomposting — so effective. Worms devour your food scraps, digest them,
and then poop out super-rich, fertile compost loaded with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium,
and many micronutrients. The action of the worms also keeps the compost
aerated and tumbled, so no need to do that yourself. When tended to properly, your worm composter
should have no smell. The Worm Factory 360 is small enough to sit
in a sun porch or corner of the kitchen, or you can tuck it on a protected area of your
patio. Worm bins do need to be kept in a temperature
range of 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so if outdoors in a cold winter area, you will need
to bring the bin indoors for the winter. The setup includes four trays, although you
can add additional trays if you want to expand. The process of vermicomposting is simple:
Add worms to the bottom tray along with organic waste, and the worms will start their magic. When the bottom tray is full, add a new tray
on top. The worms will work their way up through the
trays, allowing you to rotate trays as compost breaks down. There’s a spigot to drain out compost tea,
and small “ladders” that make it easier for your worms to crawl into the upper trays. With 750 reviews and an average of 4.4 stars,
Amazon shoppers really like the Worm Factory 360. Satisfied buyer Chad writes, “I could not
be more pleased with my purchase. I have NO worm escapees, and any excess moisture
drains from the bottom spigot. My red worms are thriving and voraciously
consuming the food scraps I deposit into the tray. Great product and convenient for apartment
living.” You will need to stock your worm bin with
red worms, so look to Uncle Jim’s Red Worms for a source of 1,000 live red wigglers. Add them to the bottom bin of your composter,
and the worms will do the rest. The Worm Factory 360 comes with an instructional
DVD that teaches you everything you need to know about vermicomposting. The composter is available in black, green,
or terracotta. And for our last pick we have the best basic
closed compost bin which goes to the Soil Saver Classic Compost Bin. The most basic type of closed composter, the
Soil Saver Classic Compost Bin is basically a box made of black plastic to maintain heat
and regulate moisture for quicker composting. The open bottom lets worms, moisture, and
microorganisms freely enter the bin to work their composting magic on your food scraps,
yard waste, and other organic trash. The lid lifts off so you can toss in scraps
easily, and locks in place when closed so hungry critters can’t raid the bin. There are plenty of vents, as well, which
let oxygen reach the bin’s contents. While it’s not required that you mix the decomposing
compost periodically, it will greatly speed up the process. Unlike tumbling or rolling compost bins, mixing
the contents of a traditional closed bin means you’ll need to use a shovel or pitchfork. Once the lower levels of the compost are “cooked,”
you simply open the sliding doors on the bin’s lower edge and shovel out the black gold. The bin’s 12-cubic-foot capacity means you
can provide your yard with plenty of nourishing compost throughout the year. The sturdy construction and heavy plastic
won’t warp, split, or crack, and is BPA-free. Pleased Amazon buyers praise the bin’s sturdy
construction, ease of use, and fertile compost. Many call it “the perfect composter,” and
say they own two or more of the bins for full-yard composting. The few complaints mostly deal with receiving
faulty products. So that sums up our top compost bins of 2019. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
