Make Compost 10x Faster with Food Scrap Shredder

  • VIDEO: How the Green Cycler works. Note: Several models are featured in the video; we sell the Green Cycler Garden Green V300.
  • "Pre-composter" chops food scrap into uniform small pieces
  • Speeds composting process
  • Helps make high quality, uniform compost

This hand-operated, self-contained shredder chops food scraps into small pieces so they compost faster and more uniformly. Its compact, flat-back design means it can sit on the countertop or underneath most kitchen cabinets. Stainless steel blades are housed in a removable cartridge for easy cleaning. A handy drawer catches and holds up to one gallon of scraps until it's time to bring them out to the compost bin; may be used with Bio Bags (sold separately). An industrial-strength suction cup holds it securely to the counter; micro vents and a zeolite filter reduce odors.

  • Stainless steel and plastic
  • 14-3/8" W x ‚Äč12-7/8" H x 12-1/8" D
  • Odor-absorbing zeolite (a volcanic rock) filter can be recharged in the sun
  • Not intended for chopping bones, corn cobs, avocado pits and similarly hard food scraps

    • Reducing Compost Time

    I have been composting for five years in compost tumblers. These work well, but I often don't cut up full-size produce which has spoiled, banana peels, or egg shells. When I saw the Green Cycler product on the Gardeners' site I was excited to try it, hoping to speed my compost turnaround and add convenience in the kitchen.

    We used the product for two weeks. It did work well to break down fruit and vegetable scraps into small pieces, but in the end it isn't for us and we will be returning it. Large fruits like grapefruits do not fit into the mouth of the Green Cycler and we had to chop them up before running through the green cycler (defeating the purpose a bit). The Green Cycler worked well on egg shells, onion peels, small tomatoes, herbs, and banana peels. Odors were fairly well contained within the unit, but very strong upon opening the lid or removing the bin to dump it. Prior to this we used an open top compost bucket and never had issues with odor or mold. The Green Cycler retained moisture and molded terribly on the inside. I believe this is what caused the odor issues.

    This was not the driving factor for our return, but the clear lid to the Green Cycler would not fully open when the unit was placed on our countertops under the kitchen cabinets. Because of this we kept it on the more open part of our kitchen counters which was not an ideal storage location for space.

    The lid, chopper, and bin are removable. We ran them through the dish washer, but they didn't come fully clean. Clean enough for routine operation, but not as clean as I would have liked.

    • With the increase in recycling and reuse programs, it's easier than ever to reduce the amount of trash in our garbage cans. But we can do more. Some estimates say that a single household can divert 300 pounds a year from the waste stream.
