We love this Biostack composter for its ease of use and simplicity: its three bottomless tiers make turning the pile simple and easy, saving your back while improving your soil. Built of 60% recycled polyethylene, the composter is water-proof, rot-proof, rodent-proof and easy to clean. The hinged lid blocks rain and retains heat, efficiently decomposing your scraps and making valuable compost. The composter can hold 13 cubic feet, and stands 34 inches high.

Composting is a great way to use kitchen scraps that might otherwise be trash. Any kitchen scraps can be composted, such as fruit and veggie peels, egg shells, etc. In addition, shredded paper, coffee grounds and grass clippings make great additions to compost. See Can I Compost This? For more.
