Kitset Compost Bins

Make your own organic compost with one of our kitset compost bins. Constructed from naturally durable and environmentally friendly macrocarpa, it will give you years of service. The front boards slide in and out for ease of extracting the finished compost. Our compost bin kitsets are available in both two-bin and three-bin models; the three bin model system allows you to turn the compost, which accelerates the composting process.

Model Bin Size Bin Height No. of Bins Total Length Kitset Price Prebuilt Price
Two Bin 900x900mm 1000mm 2 1800mm $475 $595
Three Bin 900x900mm 1000mm 3 2700mm $595 $750

Nails and a comprehensive instruction sheet are supplied. A two bin takes about an hour to construct.

These kitsets are able to be shipped over the entire country. We also have ready-built compost bins available from our yard.
