Algreen Soil Saver Classic Compost Bin is constructed of 100% recycled material. It features two sliding doors at the bottom that is used to remove finished compost, and a locking self-watering lid to keep out animals. The composter also comes with an essential composting guide, “A Sense of Humus.”
This composter with latching lid is outstanding for kitchen scraps, particularly if you live in an area where critters could get into your compost.
I just imagine it’s also the ideal solution for people in more urban environments because it will make your compost tidy and not unsightly.
I would need about 5 of these to handle to fall leaves, so I opted for a cheaper alternative for leaf litter and use this for kitchen scraps. I’ve not had a critter problem.
I think if you’re an urban gardener, this is your best bet for a composter. It’s also super easy to set up, and you have the option of putting the two bottom sliding doors adjacent to each other or on opposite sides.
I advise this bin for its ease to put together, acceptable aesthetic, and strong construction.
