The Green Cone is an unique and environmentally-friendly solution for disposing of household food waste. The unit accepts all cooked and uncooked food waste including vegetable scraps, meat, fish, bones, dairy products and other organic material. Nature does the rest, reducing the Green Cone's contents to water and carbon dioxide. Over 90% of the waste material in your Green Cone will be absorbed as water by the soil. Designed for a sunny spot in a well drained garden, the Green Cone is suitable for an average household of four people.

Green Cone is a food waste disposal unit, not a traditional composter in that it does not produce compost for garden use. It is designed to keep organic material out of the waste stream.

Features & Benefits:

  • Solar digester breaks down all food wastes
  • Accepts about 1.5 to 2 pounds of food waste per day
  • No need to chop food, layer, turn, or water the pile
  • Perfect accessory to a compost bin
  • Does not replace compost bins for breaking down yard waste
  • Made from recycled plastic

Green Cone Kit Includes:

  • Green outer plastic cone
  • Black inner cone
  • Custom-fitted lid
  • Lower basket, installed below ground
  • 4 oz. compost accelerator powder and shaker jar
  • Assembly hardware


  • Inner cone and basket made from 100% recycled plastic
  • Outer cone made from UV stabilized polyethylene
  • Stands 27.5 inches high above ground
  • Digestion chamber is 17 inches deep
  • 23 inch diameter base
  • 11.5 inch diameter lid
  • Weight: 18.75 pounds

The diameter of the 17-inch deep digestion basket is 21.5 inches at the top and 16 inches at the bottom. A series of slots designed into the basket begin 7.5 inches below ground level and effectively remove about half of the side wall and base material. The inner and outer walls of the conical solar chamber are 4/5 inch apart, providing a gap that is open at the top and bottom of the unit. The diameter of the outer chamber reduces from 23 inches at its base to 11.5 inches at the lid end. The chamber is 27 inches high but when assembled and installed, the Green Cone stands 27.5 inches above ground level and extends 16.5 inches below ground level. Access is through an 8-inch diameter hole in the top of the solar chamber, which is sealed by a hinged lid with a turnbuckle security catch.

What can go in?

  • Raw and cooked food scraps e.g. fruit, vegetables, fish, red meat, poultry, all bones, bread, dairy, egg shells, tea bags, coffee grounds and more
  • Light pet waste

Accelerator Powder

The Green Cone comes with accelerator powder and a shaker jar. Where the Green Cone is situated in a position that does not enjoy full sun or during long periods of cold weather, the digestion process may benefit from the application of accelerator powder. Simply shake a small amount of powder into your compost pail before emptying food waste into the Green Cone.

The accelerator powder is simply a mixture of natural bacteria that ensures a healthy population of safe bacteria to keep your Green Cone working efficiently.
