Early Birthday Present - A Stackable Composting Bin

My husband surprised me this weekend with a homemade stackable composting bin he saw on the Internet. The way it works is that you unstack it and begin to add matter to the 1st section. A layer of browns (like dead leaves, newspaper, cardboard or straw) followed by a layer of greens (like grass clippings, coffee grounds or vegetable scraps). Add sections as needed to raise height of bin.

When you get ready to "turn" the compost, remove the top section of bin and set it as close to the other three sections as possible. Then just start moving the compost into the single section working your way through the entire stack of compost replacing tiers until all compost is moved over.

I love it!
