Can anyone suggest a cheap way to make a compost bin? We are renting a house and are in the city, so I want something that is contained (no pests) and I can move it when we move. It must be cheap & easy!!!! I can't stand to throw away all these fruit and veggie scraps we are using. Thanks!!
We started a compost bin with a $10 trash can. My husband drilled a bunch of holes in it for drainage, and as long as we keep plenty of leaves in it, there's no noticeable smell.
I use a large tupperware-type container in the kitchen to store scraps until I take the out to the bin. Sometimes I keep it in the freezer, but it usually just sits on the counter.
We will probably buy at least one more trash can, so we can finish the compost in one and start new in the other one.
we do an inside worm bin (2 totes inside of one another with holes) - no odor and the eat a ton --except for citrus and onions and I have a place to dump those so all the other gets composted- cost around $20.00 total with the worms (bait shop--we use red) - I get the tea and that is great!
it doesn't sound like she can do pallets though - she said she wants it contained. We've done trench and worms when those were the best solutions in out living arrangements. Both are great! I'm sure you could also find some gardening friends or a community garden who would take them off your hands :)
