How the Urban Composter works

Compost food scraps with the Urban Composter

Throw

Cut your scraps into small pieces are placed into the Urban Composter. All types of food scraps can be composted including: Meat, Fish, Vegies, Fruit, Dairy, Coffee, Wilted Flowers (no bones or excessive liquids).


Spray

Our Urban Composter – Compost Accelerator is sprayed on to the scraps which assists the break down and fermentation of the scraps in the bucket. The Urban Composter uses an anerobic composting process which means that the food scraps don’t rot or smell while breaking down.


Drain

As the scraps ferment, liquids are released. This juice – which is saturated in good bacteria and nutrients – can be drained from the bucket every few days. This can be used as an excellent fertiliser for plants, or can be flushed down drains as it promotes septic systems.


Mix with soil

The scraps will break down in approx 4-8 weeks. Once the bucket is full, and all the liquid drained, the pulp can be added to soil. It can be: buried in the garden, in a pot or planter of soil, added to outdoor composting or to worm farms.
