Make your own compost bin

Build your own composter (often known as a New Zealand bin)

Building your own composter can be quick and easy. You can recycle old pallets to make a perfectly serviceable composter quickly, easily and cheaply.

Or you can build a simple, slatted composter that’s easy to put together and easy open up when you want to get at the compost.
