Composting in the city, is that possible?

In the meantime, most people know that you can easily compost your own organic waste with a worm bin. But what if you look up to a worm colony or just have more waste than a standard worm bin can handle? Is an ordinary compost heap or compost container suitable in the city?

Little space or afraid of pests?

A closed compost container is then a good solution. It keeps pests at bay and saves space. You can even just put some compost barrels on your balcony or roof terrace.

No time to regularly scoop or convert the compost?

Unfortunately, it often goes wrong because we are busy and therefore do not have time to aerate the compost regularly: a prerequisite for fast and good composting. All our compost bins are designed in such a way that oxygen is supplied automatically so that conversion is not necessary.

Do you want to compost in winter?

Some compost bins are insulated so that composting continues in the winter.
