Default Where to buy a compost bin.

Hello everyone!

I'm looking to get a compost bin, but I cant seem to find one locally must be a seasonal thing. Do you have any suggestions of a good site to get one from? I know there are a dozen sites but is there one that is more reliable.

Also what have been your experiences with using a bin instead of tumbler? Any recommended "brand"?

I've tried the pile method but I have dogs and they love to roll around in it so I think maybe a bin or tumbler would work better.

another option would be to make one out of Pallets

Thanks for your help.

I am going to be using the pallet method myself. You can usually find a local business that will give them away for free, and the wood isn't prone to rotting for quite a while.

You can still get them here at Lowe's. Try calling around at those to see if they have any left. I think they are around $50 though. Pallets can be free.

I use metal "U" stakes and 32-inch tall wire garden fencing. Just make a rectangular perimeter out of the fencing and start throwing stuff in. A good place to put it is in a location where you plan to have a garden bed in a few years.
