Inside a Compost Bin

Compost bins are an efficient way to help manage waste. They help to allow for the combination of micro and macro organisms to take place helping to facilitate biological stabilization reducing the negative impact of waste on the environment.

What Are Compost Bins?

Compost bins are a very popular tool used to contain the waste that is intended for composting. They provide an environment for the decomposition and break down of the waste. They can be made of many different materials including plastics, weathered-wood or wire. They come in many different shapes and sizes which can meet the needs for city dwellers and large companies alike. Another popular type of compost bin includes a drum bin. It is also called a tumbler and it combines organic waste easily with minimal user effort. A person simply has to add the organic waste to the open end and saturate it with water. The water will be left on the waste for approximately six to eight weeks and then mixed. This allows air to penetrate the waste allowing bacteria to thrive in a controlled area. In order to break down the waste bacteria people add yeast, ants and fungus to the waste. This leave a nutrient filled fertilizer that can be used to help cultivate and grow different plants, trees, fruits and vegetables.The waste should become compost after fourteen to sixteen weeks depending on the nature of the waste.  It also prevents the area from attracting pests and rodents. It can also prevent the foul smell that can come with the bio degradation process. Airflow is one of the most important aspects of turning waste into composted materials successfully because it allows bacteria to break down the materials in a easy way. An aerator can be added to mix waste easily while allowing air to circulate which speeds up composting time.
