Instructions for the Wire Bin Composter
and the 3-Bin Composting System
Assembly of a one-bin system
Step 1: Using the four Wire Panels and Cage Clips, you will be forming a square bin by connecting the Panels together with Cage Clips. At the top, middle and bottom of each corner, push the open side of the Clip onto the two bars and snap the Clip shut (Figure 1). Place the bottom Clip just above the lowest horizontal rung. Start with two Panels, with the smooth sides together and welded sides facing out.
Step 2: Add the third and fourth sides one at a time.

A single Wire Bin Composter holds up to 20 cubic feet of materials. By connecting two or three bins, you can have one bin to collect waste, one for cooking compost, and one for finished compost or for leaves. (Fig. 2)
Assembly of a three-bin system
Step 1: Assemble two one-bin composters, as described above. You will use eight Wire Panels and 24 Cage Clips (Figure 2).
Step 2: Join the Bins using the two remaining Wire Panels and 12 Cage Clips. Push each Clip onto one connecting Wire Panel and one Bin Panel at the top, middle and bottom of each corner (Figure 3). Do not try to push clips onto three panels. Make sure all clips are closed and secure.
