  • Organic Food Waste Garden Twin Composter – ROTO – 160 litre

    ,

    One of the fastest and most effective ways to make compost is by using a composter that allows for as much aeration as possible. This is best done with a tumbling composter which thoroughly mixes all the organic waste on a regular basis.

    What makes the ROTO composter so effective is that it overcomes the drawbacks of having to wait 2-3 months for compost to mature (as is the case with single tumblers). The unique two chamber design of the ROTO composter allows you to fill one chamber while the other is curing. The result is a continuous supply of valuable compost.

    Other features of the ROTO Composter include an impressive capacity of 140lt (70lt for each chamber), easy to use sliding door, compact design and adjustable air vents for increased air circulation.

ABOUT THE OUTDOOR COMPOST BINS

One of the fastest and most effective ways to make compost is by using a good quality outdoor composter that allows for as much aeration as possible and allows you to mix all the organic waste on a regular basis. Our range of outdoor composting bins are ideal for your office, school or home.

Available in a range of styles for any size area, these outdoor composting bins are perfect to keep you accountable with your recycling and organic waste. Our outdoor composting bins are easy to assemble and are sure to provide you with plenty of nutrient rich compost to nourish all your garden plants.

EFFECTS OF ORGANIC WASTE

Did you know that 85% of the stuff we throw out could be reused or recycled? Our outdoor composting bins are the best tool to help divert organic waste from landfill and send it back in to the earth.

Organic waste in landfills produces methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide – attributed to global warming. In addition, the water flowing through landfills forms leachate, which contaminates ground and surface water with hazardous substances, detrimental to all living creatures.

Organic waste is considered the “good” type of waste because it is not a substance such as plastic, discarded electronics or aluminium that will last for thousands of years. However, because it begins degrading as soon as it is produced, it means it’s also the messiest type of waste to deal with and dispose of.

HOW DOES THE OUTDOOR COMPOSTING BIN WORK?

These outdoor composting bins can hold all your household, school or office food waste. They are made to be durable and washable so that you can get as much use out of them as possible, plus they can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

Your outdoor composting bin will ensure that your staff aren’t tempted to drop their fruit and vegetable scraps into general waste, and will instead help you to make the most of your organic waste collection program.

If your office has an onsite composter, ask to have your cleaners regularly empty your indoor green waste bins there instead of the general waste bins to ensure no food or organic waste is being sent to landfill.

USING YOUR OUTDOOR COMPOSTING BIN

It is important to only place the correct items in your outdoor composting bin as contamination (placing the wrong type of material into the bin) can actually have a huge impact on the composting process. To ensure that your outdoor composting bins are being used correctly, ensure you educate your staff, school or household in the correct use of the composting bins. You could also place an educational poster near to the bin so that when people are throwing their waste away, they know exactly what bin their waste should go into. As with all composters the more you aerate the organic waste the faster it decomposes, so an occasional mix with an aerator, pitch fork or shovel can assist with the composting process.

WHAT CAN I PUT IN THE OUTDOOR COMPOST BIN?

Your food and garden waste are organic materials that are perfect for going back into the earth and can be composted to do so.

Our local farmers and growers can use the organic waste compost from our organic indoor bins to improve the health of our soils and make the land more productive. This also helps to keep organic waste out of our landfills, where it isn’t wanted.

You can place any kind of organic waste in your outdoor composting bins. Organic waste includes grass clippings, food waste and scraps, tree branches, garden pruning’s, weeds and any organic rich material.

Things that cannot be placed in to your outdoor composting bins are items such as:

– Paper, cardboard and plastics
– Glass and metal
– Soil and stones
– Plant pots
– Nappies

These are items that can contaminate your outdoor composting bin.
