Pest Free Composting At Home

The rotating composter is made from a thick rotational moulded plastic. The unit comes already assembled with a very clever base plate including a revolutionary caster design. A rotating composter breaks down waste quicker than a tower composter as the constant mixing of materials speeds up the mouldering process. This is an excellent unit.

Easy to use - Mixes Compost - Rodent Proof - Very sturdy Construction

How does the roto composter work? It's so simple, the tumbler sits on the base where the integral caster wheels sit neatly into the grooved track on the drum. The tumbler spins easily on the base allowing you to mix your compost perfectly while the side vent holes let air enter the chamber.

The lid fixes tightly to the drum with a tight twist action which seals the composter making it completely rodent proof.

I bought this at the start of the summer as I have only a small back yard. I've always used 'daleks' before with great success. Positives: It's small and not too ugly, yet it seems to hold a lot. It's good value too. Negatives: As soon as its half full, it's too heavy to tumble. I've had problems getting the brown-green mix right - the usual mix for a dalek doesn't work and gets too wet, so you need lots of brown, and sawdust if possible. Also the bin itself is really sturdy but the base is much more flimsy, and moves if you're tumbling a heavy load. I think it would be much better if it was suspended from a bar or something on the sides, to allow it to spin, even if that made it a bit bigger.

I bought one of these units about 6 months ago and have managed to produce 2 lots of really good compost since. This is a vast improvement on my past composting experiences. Well done to this product designer. If it was a little large that would help

Is this suitable for animal waste? I have two dogs and wonder if this would be suitable.

Hi Sonya. This composter will not be suitable for animal waste. You would need a fully insulated composter to generate enough heat to kill pathogens and break down the dog waste and make it safe to use. We are agents for the Joraform range but this is a much more expensive unit: https://www.quickcrop.co.uk/search/joraform

Do you at some stage need to stop adding material to the composter in order to harvest. If you keep adding material how do you harvest the compost? Since you have to use a shovel you will not be able to separate compost from material that still needs to break down.

Hi Tim. Yes, you will have to stop adding material at some stage to allow the material to fully compost. The only composters on the market that you can use the same unit year round are the Joraform units which are much more expensive than the simple barrel devices. The joraform features 2 separate insulated compartments so you can fill one while composting the other. They also produce finished compost very quickly so you are unlikely to ever have to let it catch up. I include a link for your convenience: https://www.quickcrop.ie/search/jora

Do you need to add worms to this? Can you add cooked food scraps? Also, it's rodent proof but could it attract rodents to the area?
Answered by Andrew
on May 15th, 2015
You don't add worms to the rotating composter, it is not a wormery. Cooked food scraps are more likely to attract rodents so I do not recommend adding them. The composter shouldn't attract rodents to the area if used with uncooked vegetable food scraps and garden waste.
