Soil Saver Composter

Maybe you're wanting to get up and running with producing compost or perhaps you already have open wooden or chicken-wire frame compost piles in your garden and want to get them prettied up. Either way a perfect answer could be the Soilsaver Composter.
It’s compact in size and it can turn out beautiful, nutrient-rich humus in as little as six to eight weeks after adding the first waste material. Being in the recycling business, Soilsaver follows its own ethos and produces this composter from 100% recycled waste.
It’s a robust, heavy-duty construction and the dark colored material absorbs the sun’s heat which helps speed-up the bacterial composting process.
The compost is totally enclosed in this container and there are two sliding doors at the base to give you access to the beautiful compost when it’s ready. The lid can be locked as a deterrent to hungry little ‘critters’ who might be attracted to whatever you’re throwing in. (Poor little souls).
If you’re a seasoned gardener or new to composting this classic model is sturdy, simple-to-use, affordable and effective.
The Soilsaver Container measures 28 inches square with a height of 32 inches. That size makes it suitable for most sizes of garden or it can fit into a corner of a patio space. It’ll hold up to 11.4 cubic feet of organic waste and kitchen scraps, enough for a family of four. That equates to about 30% of an average home’s recycling waste. That’s impressive!
