Exclusive | Economical 3-Bin Wire Composter

  • Three-bin composter holds a total of 48 cubic feet
  • Made of heavy-gauge, powder-coated steel

You may need only one composter most of the year, but where can you put that mountain of leaves every fall? This three-bin wire composter holds 48 cubic feet of leaves, grass clippings and garden scraps, without the investment of an enclosed composter. The three bins can also be used to separate compost: one to collect yard and kitchen waste, one for cooking compost, and one for finished compost.

    We like this composter, though we would like a better way to assemble it. The clips are difficult to get on the second screen. Once the clips are on, it's easy peasy.

    Comments about : 3-Bin Wire Composter:

    Does not compost as quickly as I like... but I am also not mixing brown with green religiously. Have two sets, one for fall leaves and one for kitchen scraps and random yard cleanup. The upside is we compost most everything from kitchen so it does not go down disposal. Downside is actively monitoring and mixing so it can be used on garden. Hickory and oak nuts don't compost well....they seem to last for years.

      Flimsy wire with poor quality plastic connectors

      Pros

        • Flimsy

        • Leaves & Brush

        Comments about : 3-Bin Wire Composter:

        For such an expensive system of wire construction, I expected a heavier gauge wire that would accept grass, leaves and garden waste for a complete compost system. Instead, the wire is thin, and the fasteners were hard to use and of poor quality as well. Several broke during assembly, so I replaced them with plastic self-tightening cable ties that worked fine. The directions for using the plastic clips were non-existent. I expected good quality and didn't get it. In hindsight, I could have created a sturdier alternative for half the $99.50.

            For the past three years we have been adding these bins to our garden. We have heeled potted plants into the mulching leaves to keep them warm during the winter. In the spring the leaves make excellent mulch. Later in the season, the composted leaves make an excellent soil addition to our gardens.

            The clips that came with this to put it together either didn't work or broke. I ended up buying rugged ties from the hardware store to assemble it. Other than that it works great. I bought it for leaf mulch that I intend to use for mulch for my vegetable garden next year.

              Comments about : 3-Bin Wire Composter:

              I bought this product to store my fall leaves in until they can be put into my compost bins. It holds a lot. I can easily aerate it with my pitch fork and turn it all. It was a little difficult to put together because some of the latches worked easily and some didn't. I'm not sure where I'm going to put it in spring; I'm fairly sure I'm not going to want to take it all apart until I need it again, so I'll likely have to find a new spot for it. I'm happy I bought it. It definitely is helping me to store the leaves that I'll need in the future, and it's so much nicer than storing bags of leaves in my garage.
