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.

Great bins - but I replace the clasps.
from Bucks County, Pennsylvania
Comments about : 3-Bin Wire Composter:
I have over twenty of these bins but the clips do not last. I purchased the clasps that you use on the ends of a dog leash that clip onto a doggy's collar. Works as a great replacement . I suggest you buy them in bulk and you only need a one sided clasp vs the two sided clips/clasps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had my 3-bin composter for 10 years. I was concerned the wire wouldn't last but the vinyl coating has withstood the elements. I didn't attach the fronts to the 3 bins because I like to turn the compost with a pitchfork. Some of the decomposing contents falls through the wire so don't put the bins up against anything like a fence or shed. I just bought a 2nd one for my son.
Great for composting leaves
from Shoreline, Ct
Went together with ease and holds the leaves in regardless of the weather. I wish they were a little bigger
Stand the test of time !
Have one about 12 years. My daughter wants to start composting so I got one for her . I love mine,the only problem is how it goes together. I had to use zip ties to open and close mine after several years. Still works great! Thanks for a great product!
Decent compost bins.
I like the size of the bins and the walls are pretty sturdy. Putting it together is a pain. The little snap on pieces are rather difficult to use but worth the frustration in the end.

As other reviewers have noted, the "snaps" to hold the bins together are flimsy, so I bought zip ties ahead of time. Used a combination of both, seems sturdy now, has stood up through a few wind storms so far.
Easy to assemble and perfect for composting.
The bins are good but you need your own zip ties
from Eastsound, WA
The bins are good but you need your own zip ties. The connectors that come with it did not work on the interior sections but this was easy to remedy with zip ties.

ease of fasteners
from longview WA
It was very dificult to use the fasteners for the two middle sheets in the 3 package. Lot easier to buy three separate units

Looks good in the pictures, but ...
The theory behind these bins is good - they are sturdy and well made, and so far mine look great after two years of hard use. The practice is where these bins break down - the included clips are extremely difficult to use. Hard to get on, almost impossible to get off, and I never could figure out how to clip things together for a sturdy 3-bin setup. Ended up using coated gardening wire, which is also necessary if you want to take the front panel off to turn the bin, because they're too high to easily reach in and do it that way.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
