Keep in mind that no matter what size or brand of compost bin you decide is right for you, you will eventually need more than one—so you can start loading the second bin while the first one finishes cooking.

    I’ve been composting for years mostly using a heap I turn regularly. I have read that the optimum size for a heap is 3cubic feet. I wonder how well your smaller bins work. Have you tested them?-

    • Hi, Marilyn. Thank you for your compost question! Yes, I have tested all 3 sizes. While it is true that a pile 3 cubic yards (the size of my large bin) will retain heat better than in the small bin, you can definitely get heat in smaller sizes with the right recipe and management. I personally use three medium size bins at my house, and they get very hot even when only half full.

    Hi – I’m a long-term composter and currently have the opportunity to compost in your larger bins. I miss having full access to the top of the bin and was wondering if hinges could be used without destroying the structural integrity. The bin is sited in a semi-arid climate and moisture control is a big issue for us. I’m considering lining the sides of the bin with 6-mil black plastic to help retain moisture. Are your instructions available? Thank you!

    • Hi Whitney, I’m sorry I’m only seeing this question now! I’m not sure what you’re asking about the hinges, and perhaps you’ve already found the solution since you wrote this. But as for the moisture question, I do not recommend lining the sides with plastic. I would rather you add water as need instead. However, if you have already done so I would be very interested to hear your results.

    I’ve read that I should have two compost bins going. Do you reccommend this as well? And I live in New Jersey, is it too late in season to start composting or can I do it all through winter too?

    • Hi Hadley, thanks for your questions. Yes, I do recommend having two (or more) bins going. After you’ve filled one up with food scraps, you should stop adding to it and just let it cook. You may want to stir it or turn it every so often (which gives it oxygen) to speed it up. Meanwhile, you can start adding to the empty bin. And yes, you can definitely compost all year long, especially in a temperate place like NJ. The trick is to make sure you have enough space in your bins at the beginning of winter so you can keep adding even when the composting process has slowed or stopped when it’s freezing outside. I actually use three medium bins (for a two-person household) so that I can keep adding scraps throughout the 5 months of Vermont winters.
