The Advantages Of A Metal Compost Bin


When you decide to start a compost pile or to create your own metal compost bin, there are a few things you will need to learn before you can get to the easy part. You can build your own bin or you can purchase one online and in various stores like Home Depot.

If you want to build your own, then you'll need a few things. The metal compost bin starts out as a metal drum usually used to store oil, dirt, and other corrosive ingredients. You should get a new one that is unused just to be sure nothing that was stored in it before is going to contaminate your compost. Toxins can get in there and destroy the microbes that do all the actual composting leg work - you don't want that.

You should make sure that the metal compost bin doesn't have paint or anything toxic to food in the inside of it. Some bins for some reason are painted often with a form of Teflon likely to prevent corrosion of the container. This is fine when storing things that aren't affected easily like oil, but a compost heap is a living eco-system that can very easily be affected and infected. This could corrode and even poison your compost and anything you put it in.

You're going to need to poke a great many holes in the entire surface area (sides) of the bin to allow for air flow circulation. The bin will be turned to help mix it up and give the microbes opportune access to the organic matter. You will want to make sure you can cut a door into the side of the unit for putting the bio-matter into.

It needs to be secured when closed so it doesn't come open and pour out your compost. This door will also help you get the compost out when it's finished. Compost rendering in this manner speeds up what nature does already in a much slower fashion. You can have a decent compost heap in as little as 6 months. You want to make sure your container is at least a yard squared (3x3x3) in size to allow proper heating up of the compost.
