Composting: Help Yourself and the Environment at the Same Time
The Original Classic Composter
The composting trend is growing and the most recent research shows that In 2012 the U.S recycled and composted almost 87 million tons of municipal solid waste. This saves more than 1.1 quadrillion Btu of energy; that's the same amount of energy used by 10 million households in one year.
Over 19 million tons of yard trimmings were composted in 2012, which is 5 times more than in 1990.
Food waste is the single largest type of item thrown away making up 21 percent of everything we throw out. We might as well use this food waste to fertilize our gardens rather than paying to have it sent to a landfill! The Soil Savers extra large capacity make it perfect for accommodating a good deal of food scraps.
- 12 cubic feet extra large capacity

Functional Features Making Composting Simple
Access Your Compost Easily
Dual hatch doors allow you convenient access to your compost whenever needed.
The Advantage of SoilSaver Bin Composting
The items you put in first will be at the bottom and should be the first out. This is a big benefit because you can use a little compost at a time if you need to. This is an advantage compared to most tumbling composters. With many tumbling composters, all the old scraps are mixed with the new waste which means all of the compost in the bin needs to be ready before you can use any of it.
More Advantages of the Best Compost Bin
The slots and louvers throughout the compost bin let air in and out for aeration which helps food waste break down quickly into rich compost.
The 0.200" thick resin walls provide excellent strength and durability.
The extra large 12 cubic foot capacity means you will have plenty of space for your compost waste
Lid is easy to open and lock making it convenient to add to your composter while keeping animals out
A Sense of Humus goes Well with Compost
A simple to follow yet comprehensive guide helps you put the right food waste and yard trimmings into your composter.

And boy do they compost!
When we first got one I thought "this is stupid - it's no different than when I made a square out of pallets - this is never going to work" - I was WRONG. I don't know if it's because it's black and gets warm, or if it's all the went holes but not too many, or what - but this thing is a compost making machine!
From being packed to the top with garden clippings, shredded paper and veggie kitchen scraps - this thing made me black compost in like 4 weeks! Just keep feeding it from the top (no tuning or screwing around required) and then dig the compost out of the bottom.
Only one problem... after seeing how good one worked - I got a second.
I love that this is a great standard compost bin. I wanted a simple design that was easy to use.
The lid has a handle and you can lock the lid on each side by turning a handle. This is a great feature for if you live anywhere where wildlife could be an issue.
There are two doors on the bottom of the compost bin, which slide up and down so that you can remove the turned compost. Although this compost bin is very sturdy, the doors can be a bit finicky. Once you have a lot of compost in the bin, the soil tends to push against the doors, so once you pull one up, it can be tough to get it back down.
As far as my compost, I have been getting lots of great compost out of this bin. I use a biodegradable composting bag system in my kitchen, and all organic waste goes in the compost bin, year round. As soon as the weather is warm enough, the compost starts to turn. There are some ventilation holes in the bin to keep the compost aerated.
After 8 years, this compost bin is going strong. It still looks good and works just fine. It gets a lot of sun, and being in New England, we get a lot of inclement winter weather. However, none of that has been an issue for the bin. I don't see myself needing to replace this bin anytime soon in the near future.
Bottom line: I really like it and I'm happy with my purchase. The plastic is recycled (kudos) and thick so it's sturdy. Assembly was easy with plastic bolts and nuts (so they don't rust) and they provided the tool. Took me 15 minutes and I was drinking beer - put a screw in, take a sip of beer, contemplate, repeat. About 12 screws. Design is very well thought out IMO.
Some notes: It has no bottom, which I expected. It has rain holes on top, not sure if that will be enough but I could add more. Comes with a very basic composting guide but helpful. It has two doors along the bottom which I opted (read: didn't notice until I was done) to put on adjoining sides but could have put on opposite sides. The knobs you see on top are the locks, one on each side, nothing it getting without turning the whole thing over, e.g. bear, dog, etc. Comes with a 25 year warranty!!! Made in Canada. I think this item is made for Sam's Club and I've seen good prices on it at their site but it was out of stock everywhere.
As an aside, compost doesn't stink. I received my kitchen bin first and started saving stuff. It adds up fast, you'll be amazed. So I needed a place to store it when that filled up and used a bucket and lid out on the porch, in the sun. Two weeks later it still didn't smell, fruit, veggies, cereal, coffee grinds, eggs - nothing...
See my pics of the unit above!
Note: We are experienced composters and this seems the best of the ones we have bought in the past 15 years.
Updated a month later -- this is a keeper for sure.
All and all, I am happy with this bin and would recommend it.
