How to Compost in Small Spaces Using a Trash Can

One of the major factors keeping people from composting is a perceived lack of space.

I decided to create a simple trash can composter system to see how effective it is.

For just $20 and 15 minutes to drill the holes, I have a composting system that is equal in capacity to a pricey compost tumbler.

As long as you drill enough holes and pay attention to moisture levels, this composting method should work for people that only have a small yard, alleyway or perhaps a balcony to work with.

I’ll have more updates on this in the coming months…let me predict the future: it works!
