The Exaco Thermo King 250 Gallon Bin
Exaco Aerobin Insulated Self Aerating Composter
Talk about amazing. This bin not only looks neat and sleek, but it’s insulated to retain heat. And it aerates itself. No turning needed. This is a brand new product but it sure looks useful. There’s even a base and reservoir to collect any liquid that forms at the bottom; you can add the liquid to the garden, too.
Below is an expansion kit to increase the amount of room in your Exaco Aerobin composter.
Compost tumblers are also a commercial composting bin, but they look like barrels on rolling stands. The barrel has a handle on the side that you crank to turn the compost, or the barrel is mounted on rollers so you can just spin it easily. Spinning the compost or tumbling it helps aerate and mix it, which helps those good bacteria do the job they were born to do; break down your scraps into compost.
Tumblers also contain any odors and keep critters out, which is a plus in certain parts of the country. They’re a little on the pricey side, but frankly, if I could afford to buy a compost bin it would be a tumbler.
