What sort of compost bin should I get? I live in in the city with a small yard and would like one that produces good compost with as little smell and

The plastic compost bins sold at garden centers are not strong enough to keep racoons and rats from getting in and making a mess for you to clean up. I use blocks or concrete (cinderblocks) to form three sides and have a wood front and top. That way I just lift the top off to add or mix the compost and the door can be removed to shovel out the compost. Good luck!


Thank you very much. I like the inexpensive approach, and your note about animals getting in has been a concern.
