Our cedar compost bins are made from solid FSC certified Western Red Cedar harvested from responsibly managed forests. We use cedar because it is naturally durable and rot/insect resistant. Each furniture quality bin is constructed by hand and includes a hinged top, dovetail joints, removable vertical mesh divider, ventilation/drainage holes in the bottom, and feet. They are strong enough to sit on and can double as a bench.

The vertical mesh divider allows you to fill one side of your bin and, once that side is full, start to fill the other side of the bin. After your worms finish eating the scraps on the first side, they will move through the mesh divider to the other side. The compost on the first side is now ready to harvest.

Below are additional images showing the front, back, and inside of our cedar bins.  The bin in the images is a custom size: 30″ long x 12″ wide x 18″ high (not including the bin feet).  Click on each image to enlarge.

Custom Compost Bin Sizes

Custom cedar bins (maximum height of 18″, any length or width) can be ordered as well.  If you are interested in a custom size, please send us an email with the dimensions and any special instructions and we’ll be happy to provide you with a price quote.

Please note that we limit the height of our worm bins to a maximum of 18″ inside (the feet add a few inches to the overall height).  Composting worms feed upwards, digesting the scraps from beneath the material.  In a container that is too deep the bedding will become too dense compressing the air out.  The worms don’t thrive in anaerobic conditions, they need oxygen.  Therefore the worms do better in a container that has more surface area vs a container that is too deep.  Anaerobic conditions are also what make foul-smelling odors so a shallow worm bin, which allows oxygen to circulate throughout the bedding, won’t have any disagreeable odor.
