Exclusive | Thought You Didn't Have Space for a Composter? Now You Do!

  • Compact composter fits in small spaces
  • Transform kitchen scraps into nutrient-rich compost
  • Easy to use

This small-space composter has a compact footprint and is ideal for your deck, patio, garage, back stoop, even a rooftop. Simply fill the two-tier box with chopped kitchen scraps, alternating with layers of Eco-co® Coir and Super Hot® Compost Starter, both sold separately. (The coir provides a source of "brown" ingredients to layer with the "green" kitchen scraps, and the compost starter contains beneficial microbes to speed the composting process.) Ventilated sides ensure good airflow and the lid discourages animal pests. A drain tube at the bottom allows you to collect nutrient-rich liquid compost tea. Once the composter is full, allow two to three months for finished compost. You can increase capacity by adding a third tier to your Compact Compost System with the Compact Compost System Extension, sold separately. (We recommend a maximum of three tiers.)

        Great invention

            Best Uses

              Glad someone finally thought of this. Makes year-round composting of food scraps easy. Takes up little space. Being raised on legs makes it easy to use and keeps critters away. You do have to empty the lid when it rains because it catches rainwater (I just empty it into the bin). I got the extension for greater capacity and would recommend doing the same.
