The longer 9/6/19 review was not posted by Amazon and I’m not sure why. I’ll remove the link to Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott from Washington State University, just incase this was the issue. I will also remove the box store information regarding my DIY bins. I will not provide you with my order of preferences, and the whys, of the bins on

I'm very pleased with my GEOBINS. My yard gets dumped on with leaves in the fall, and I needed a good solution for them. I initially bought a fancy, lidded compost bin. After I quickly filled it, I realized it was not cost effective for my leaf situation. I sprung for a less fancy looking GEOBIN and am so glad I did. After filling it, I

This compost bin happens to be the best thing I've purchased for composting. I watched a YouTube video about it by Patrick from one yard revolution. Decided to buy two. This was the easiest compost bin I have ever used and I could use it by myself with no help. Very easy to put together with the keys. And when I take it apart to turn it

After a few stumbles with assembly - watch the video, because once you get it right, it's a 30-minute job - this came together smoothly. The design is smart, it's easy to use, and its capacity is good. I don't see another composter here that can come close, given the

This composter is a great size, easy to use, and sturdy. But it took me and my husband over two hours to assemble it. The pictures are poor and instructions aren't very clear. Worse of all, the screws for the nuts and bolts are terribly SHORT. There is barely 1/4 inch of bolt sticking through the hole to attach the nut to. They could

Many people gave this product a good review saying it didn't take long to assemble. Alas I could not assemble it together alone. With my brother's help it was assembled in almost two hours. The instructions are minimal. At the final step of putting the assembled bin on the support metal pieces we discovered on side did not have a hole

I read them all and basically it all has to do with the eternal "not my fault, it's a piece if junk !" : easier to blame the item.
It's an incredibly solid machine and very clever. The assembly is time consuming but IF you were to pay for it to come in one piece it would cost a fortune.

After four years here is my review...

The Good:
I live in Chicago, so if you're in the city, it's great. Allows you to compost and won't attract wildlife (for us, rats).

Holds a fair amount of compost, two apts could probably share pending overall waste.

Dual bin design is key.

It's a nice summer composter, but absolutely not a all year round composter, unless your climate is warm all year round.
The 37 gallons size is too small for your compost to reach critical mass and self-generate enough heat.
Furthermore, even if the double compartment seems like a good idea at first, it divides the 37 gal by

Perfect for use with GLAD 30-GALLON DRAWSTRING BAGS (ASIN B004EHZ7JY). Preparing to move and discarding accumulated "stuff". Had purchased the FISKARS HARDSHELL BOTTOM 30-GALLON KANGAROO GARDEN BAG (ASIN B00005YX2Z). Nice bag but too large to accommodate 30-gallon drawstring bags. Before ordering I used π (3.14) to calculate fit

I bought this with the universal leaf collection unit (Worx WA4054.2 LeafPro Universal Leaf Collection System with Multi-Fit Adapter and 8' Hose), but the problem is that the leaf collection unit is too heavy for this spring design. It works well just to put debris in around the yard so we use it for that now. Not all is lost, but I

I ordered these because my husband and I were doing extensive yard work and the price was better than Home Depot. These bags are just as durable and survived the sticks, branches, and leaves we packed into them as tightly as possible. The city yard waste crew came late in the designated pick up week after the bags sat in the rain for two

These are OK bags. I had one rip the next day but it was filled with partially composted leaves. The bags themselves are not the reason for my review.

This composter with latching lid is really great for kitchen scraps, especially if you live in an area where critters could get into your compost. I imagine it's also a good solution for people in more urban environments, because it will make your compost tidy and not unsightly. I would need about 5 of these to handle to fall leaves, so I

This is soooo much better than the giant Mantis tumbler we got from a friend years ago. It's super easy to open the top but the design has little flaps that latch the top down so they stay put even in high winds (75 mph and the tops were still on).
And boy do they compost!
When we first got one I thought "this is stupid -

Pricey, but i like it. Very important step if you want to last long time: As soon as you receive the unit, take the nuts and bolts it came with and go to a hardware store and ask a sale associate to replace those with galvanized metal ones, get washers too. The plastic ones will not hold very well and if not galvanized will rust in no

For years I composted with 2 large bins, often with open tops, dry steer manure as a booster, and a consequent crop of flies and gnats. With our new house we say NO to flies of any form, and ordered this compost tumbler. It's small, adequate for a household of 2 people. In less than 3 months it produced rich, crumbly compost in the 1st

I had 10 banker boxes full of documents to destroy and didn't want to spend 200+ dollars to have them shredded. While I live outside the city and have a fire pit, burning them creates too much ash flying into the air which is a big fire hazard. I purchased this inexpensive incinerator to try burning them more safely.

The seller has not responded...I've reached out to the seller as this item is missing a part. The composter is otherwise great. The seller less so. A post card was included with the item requesting that we contact them with any issues. I reached out, and have heard nothing. Very disappointing.

I've had this a couple weeks and so far we really like. It's much better than the bucket sold by BioBags, which I never liked. This one is sturdy (for plastic), good size and just the right shape/height to keep it in the cabinet under the sink. The BioBag container often leaked if the bag got a hole, so I love that this won't leak. No

I don't turn it, because I can't get it to more than half full due to composting action. I put one bag in every day or so. They disappear with everything else I put in the bin.

Perfect size for our countertop compost bucket. And they hold up well. We put mostly coffee grounds, fruit and veggie scraps, and some paper towels in there. With the lid on, our compost bucket does get damp inside, but these liners hold up very well. All I could have hoped for.

I bought these to move used straw out of our chicken coops. The openings are nice and wide, and the plastic strip (which you put in like waistband elastic) keeps the opening from flopping over.

We've had this bin for just over 2 months and are pleased with both the size and the quality of the bin itself. It's held up well so far. We're far less pleased with the filters. They sent 4 filters, all of which are very thin and flimsy compared to filters we've had in the past. Additionally, 2 of the filters were way, way too small

This has worked really well for us. Composting has been weirdly fun and we end up using a lot fewer trash bags than we used to, not to mention the trash rarely stinks now that we are able to take most of our food scraps out to the compost bin.

This is a small can, so make sure you buy the size you want. If this was a garbage can, it would hold a full, black garbage bag. It is a good size for me, plus I think with a bigger can, I might get too ambitous and burn a bigger fire! Make sure you have a cleared safe space to use it and a long handled tool of some sort to push around

This is seriously the best burn can ever! I had tax stuff for almost fifteen years to burn and I did not want to kill my shredder. If you have to delay your paper burn project just put the lid on it and the fire will (almost) die. Burn your stuff with absolutely nothing over-head. No tree branches, telephone wires, awning, etc. Otherwise,

I received the new version of this product. The company has reviewed the flaws in the last model and made great improvements, particularly to the frame. The frame is now metal, much sturdier, and easier to put together. Assembly took me 20 minutes by myself with only the need for a Phillip's screwdriver.

If you buy this composer, just know that you will need to make a few modifications for it to work and perform properly.
