Did you know that a large percentage of the waste that goes into our landfills is compostable? Almost all plant matter, as well as things like egg shells, can all be composted right in your back yard. This provides you a wonderful supply of fertilizer for your flowers or garden and saves room in the dump. However many can be put off by the complexity of some compost bin designs or the cost of buying an expensive prefabricated model. The link below shows you four different easy and inexpensive compost bin designs that are not only cheap (you may even have all the required materials at home right now), but also don’t require a rocket scientist to complete! All of the designs can be done within a day or even an afternoon.
