About this item
- 7-cubic foot capacity
- Fully assembled
- Wheeled base
- Made in the USA
Composting is a great way to recycle leftovers, kitchen scraps and organic debris found around the yard into rich top soil that also doubles as mulch. At 7-cubic feet, the Compost Wizard Jr. sits out of the way yet is big enough to handle a typical load. It comes in two pieces, fully assembled.
With no waiting to compost, you can start the second the composter arrives. Handles on the Compost Wizard Jr. provide an excellent grip for turning and won't break apart. Inside the bin, those same hand holds double as agitators for the compost. It turns easily because the compost bin sits on a wheeled base. If you want to roll the bin around the yard, it can be taken right off the base. Roll compost from your prime composting spot all the way to your garden.
The 12" twist off lid keeps compost safely closed off and keeps out animals, large and small. Avoid adding meat or high protein foods or you'll get flies (also good for compost, but smelly and obnoxious). Each end of the compost bin has plenty of aeration holes which provide much needed airflow for the compost batch. You can even drill more if you live in areas that don't get as much moving air or get really hot.
Made with 100% recycled polyethylene, it's BPA-free and FDA-approved for contact with edibles. No chemicals, toxic or otherwise, leech into your compost. The Jr is black, the most efficient color at absorbing the sun's heat, keeping compost at a nice hot temperature of 100-150 degrees F (38-66 C).
The only thing you have to do is rotate the drum once a week. If your batch of materials is balanced properly and conditions are perfect, you'll have compost in as quickly as 21 days. For best results, wait for a single batch to completely compost before adding more material. (21-day projection is based on ideal conditions.)
