Where should I position my compost bin?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 12 December 2013 08:23 AM

A compost bin should be placed somewhere that is easily accessible, and in full sun or semi-shade as this will aid the heating up process of the composting material.

Compost bins that do not have a base should be placed directly on to the soil. This will allow access for worms and other soil organisms that aid the breakdown of  the material being composted. 

It is beneficial to use a compost accelerator in all compost bins whether they have a base or not. This supplies naturally occurring organisms to the material helping to speed up the composting process.
