The Aerobin is large enough to accommodate not only kitchen scraps, but also all of your yard waste. Due to it’s insulated double-walled design, the internal temperature stays warmer than the outside air. Running vertically through the composter is an aeration tube which also speeds up the rate of decomposition. At the base of the Aerobin is a small compartment that captures compost tea, which can be drained from the small spigot. Finished compost is accessed by removing one of the two lower doors (one on each side).

  • From Leanne T. at 3/17/11 9:55 AM
    • Will this composter hold up to freezing temperatures. We live in northern Montana and our old plastic composter cracked over winter. Thanks.
    • Yes, the Aerobin has been used successfully in cold climates. In freezing temperatures, it is usually the lids of plastic composters which can get frozen and stuck. Tapping the lid from the side will usually work to unstick the lid. But users should not strike the frozen lid with a hammer or hard object, or a crack could occur.

  • From Anne at 4/5/11 4:12 PM
    • How long does it take for the Aerobin to produce compost?
    • I would say 6 - 10 weeks, depending on the temperature of your location (warmer temperature will speed the process) and the material you compost. If you have a balanced compost, (both carbon and nitrogen materials) the process will be faster.

  • From Alex at 4/16/12 2:25 PM
    • Do you have to add any activator? We will be composting mostly kitchen waste and some leaves. If so, what do you recommend?
    • You do not have to add an activator. However an activator will help initiate the composting process and thereby speed the process. Some gardeners use a bit of exisitng compost for this puirpose, i.e., when you empty your first load of compost, set some aside to add back into the composter to serve as an activator. We call this 'seeding' the composter. Even if all you have is good garden soil, this will help activate your compost.

  • From Patti at 5/15/12 5:08 AM
    • We recently purchased an Aerobin composter and have used compost from our previous composter as an activator however we were wondering; as water is usually necessary to compost, should we be putting some water into our aerobin?
    • In most circumstances there is no need to add water to your composter. There should be sufficient moisture in the materials you add to the composter. Some gardeners however, like to make 'compost tea' and add water to composters, with the water draining through to a catch bin.

      This time of year it is not uncommon to have too much moisture in the composter which cools the composting materials and slows the process. If this occurs with your composterm here is an article which may help:

  • From Diane at 2/23/13 7:57 AM
    • Do we need to place the Aerobin in the sun? We are thinking of composting for the first time.
    • You do not need to place the Aerorbin in the sun. The main consideration in deciding where to place your composter is convenience, you'll be making many trips from the kitchen to the composter. Be sure to allow space for maneuvering a wheelbarrow since this what you'll likely use to remove the compost and move it to the garden.

  • From pooja at 6/10/13 10:39 AM
    • Is it necessary to have insulated bin in Southern CA like Encinitas,CA?

    • No. You can compost using a single-wall plastic composter and the process will work fine for you. However, using an insulated bin like the Aerobin will speed up the composting process. The Aerobin also holds about twice the capacity of typical composters which hold 6 - 9 cubic feet.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
  • From RJ at 6/6/17 6:30 PM
    • Does the plastic material have palates or BPA?
    • Aerobin 400 is made of 80% Polypropylene, and 20% High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Neither of these materials contain palates or BPA.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
