Wire Fencing Bin

Additional comments for Wire Fencing Bin method:
  • If shade is not available, the bin may be covered with two layers of shade fabric or cardboard.

  • Maintain a moisture level in the organic materials that it is similar to the moisture content of freshly brewed coffee grounds, saturated but not dripping.

  • As this bin has a volume of a cubic yard it may used for hot process composting or a cold static or actively managed process. For ease of turning, the bin can easily be collapsed and reassembled nearby.
