Build a compost bin from pallets – this is such an easy project anyone can do it and you get something useful for free!

Don't spend hundreds on a compost tumbler, make your own compost system for free with just a few pallets!

 

Materials you need:
5 Pallets
Screws

 

I was lucky enough to come across two pallets that had a solid sheet of pressboard on one side.  I used those two for the back of the compost bins.  It’s not necessary to have a solid back or sides, but if you can find it go for it!

So easy!  To assemble, just screw the pallets together.  Having two sides to your compost bin allows you to have one side with materials composting, and one side for you to add new materials to.  I add materials to the left side from January -June, and to the right side July-December.  You could put some boards across the front if your compost is escaping the bin.  My chickens love to scratch around in here, I like that they are helping me aerate it but they definitely make a mess pulling compost out!  Every time I add new materials I take the pitchfork and turn the compost around.  I bought this handy countertop compost collector so I can easily collect food scraps and then bring them out to the compost bin every couple days
