The simplest compost bin is
the wire bin, which can be made of chicken wire or heavier galvanized
wire. To make a wire bin, simply measure a section of wire to
meet the size of container you want. Wrap the wire around to make
a cylinder and fasten with twist ties or cut the wire so that
the ends can be attached. If you want to anchor the bin, staple
the wire to wood poles or hook the wire onto metal poles made
for this type of wire. You can turn your compost by either lifting
up the entire bin or unhooking the ends to open up one end of
the bin. Another simple compost bin is made of plastic sheets
that can be made into a cylinder (left). The garbage
can bin (right) is also very easy to make and maintain.
Another type of composter is
the Three Bin System (left). The Three Bin System can be made
easily and inexpensively by using wooden pallets. Other materials
such as concrete blocks can also be used.
