Perfect for the garden and ideal for a family of four, this Eco Composter - 280 Litres will allow you to give your organic waste a new lease of life.Wherever possible install composter container in a sunny location (on a natural base only – not on concrete, tar or stone slabs)
Made from 100% recycled material (PP), its features include a large feed opening and slip clap, smooth interior and exterior surfaces for easy cleaning, lateral ventilation slots for fast composting and a sliding opening for easy compost withdrawal.
When starting out with your composter, you should fill the container with around 2 buckets full of active compost from another composter container or compost heap (normal soil will be fine too) so that the tiny organisms living there can immediately dig into your waste and multiply.
You can then fill your container with all the organic waste from your kitchen, home and garden. You shouldn’t fill the container in one go. Instead only fill with one day’s worth of organic waste at a time. Large volumes of leaves or grass cuttings may only be added gradually.
You can put the following in your compost: Fruit and vegetable waste, coffee grounds and teabags/tea leaves, egg shells (crushed), pot plants, cut flowers and used potting soil.
Avoid putting in: Meat, fish, food waste, bread, sausage, cheese, bones, diseased plants, ash, cigarettes, vacuum cleaner bags, litter, and drinks containers.
