How To Make Your Own Kitchen Compost Bin. Here is another fun way to make the drum style compost bin for your garden spaces that would rotate so that the compost inside can move and decompose easily and quickly for your gardening purposes. Tuck kitchen scraps into the bedding, covering them completely.
Cover your tray with newspaper and put the compost bin onto the tray. You may want to purchase extra wood to build a fifth side to act as a cover,. Give the worms an hour or so to burrow into the bedding and get accustomed to their new habitat.
They won't be able to hold large amounts of compost, but it's one way to get started.
Add newspaper or shredded toilet paper rolls at the bottom of your countertop compost bin. Once you’ve added your materials, throw some manure in there. Fill the bin about a quarter full of dry leaves or shredded paper. Green materials include fruit and vegetable scraps, grass clippings, coffee grounds, and eggshells.
