Composting with a black plastic dustbin?
Yorkshire, United Kingdom
For all of you GOY members who use compost bins.....I would realyy like to give this a go, perhaps on a small scale to start with. Would this work?...I have read that I could use one of the black plastic dustbins and cut off the bottom and then rest it on the soil.
If I do this .. what can I fill it with and what should I do to maintain it? I have read that you need to turn the compost, will this be possibe using this method? And should I cut a kind of opening at the bottom of the bin to allow access to the compost.
Also will it attract vermin?
