Compost in a Trash Can?
If you have an extra plastic trash can that you use to put leaves and grass in, you can even convert it into a composter!
Just cut off the bottom with a saw or knife and place your new unit onto the soil somewhere in your garden.
Drill about 24 to 48 quarter-inch holes in the sides of your can to increase the air flow, or leave it as it is and have a closed air system.
You can bury the bottom of your can a few inches below the soil surface and press the loosened soil around the sides to secure it. To increase your composter’s capacity, just dig deeper – about one or two feet down. Digging also creates access for nature’s helpers to enter, decompose and ‘’shrink’’ your materials!
