DIY Trash Can Compost Bin

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of waste that goes into trash fills each day and it makes the highest quality of soil in which you can use to nourish your growing garden (no matter how big or small!). I put off starting a compost bin for 2 years because I thought it would be difficult and expensive.
Lo and behold, this DIY trash can compost bin is the total opposite! Using tools you most likely already have on hand, this DIY project takes 10 minutes... flat. Read on the link to see the complete tutorial and my secret to creating compost, fast. --> http://www.healthyrootshappysoul.com/diy-trash-can-compost-bin

    Thank you! I've told my husband this for a decade and since our garbage service changed and uses their own cans he through ours out. I was furious. I have a tin one from my Mom who passed away 3 years ago but I'm going to buy a new plastic one.

      It adds good bacteria to the compost, as long as you don't overdo it.
      You could add some earthworms. Keep it damp, but not wet, and keep it aerated (turned over) to keep your 'good bacteria' healthy. This way, the compost will keep breaking down.

    I will try this one.

    I'm inspired! I've been discouraged by the high price tag of the purchasable compost bins and fear rodents will take over if the compost is not enclosed. I recall my mom keeping a stainless steel bowl next to the sink to hold all the peels etc from

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
