Urban Composter™ Bucket

Urban Composter

The Urban Composter™ composting bin is the quick and easy way to make compost from your kitchen waste.

For years people have been searching for a simple and convenient kitchen compost bin, one that looks good is sturdy and works well.  At Urban Composter™ we’ve redesigned the compost bin so that it’s good enough to stay on your kitchen bench.

The Urban Composter™ isn’t just a scrap bin that holds your kitchen waste before it gets to the compost heap.  It actually starts the composting process right in your kitchen, without any bad smells.

The Urban Composter™ is a complete kitchen composting solution that turns your unwanted peels, off-cuts and leftovers into nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden.

So how did you come up with the idea?

“When my son Luke and I first started researching a solution we immediately saw the benefits of Bokashi composting. It was clean and fermented scraps quickly, without the strong odor of traditional oxygen based composting systems. The thing I struggled with, was the granular mixture required to accelerate the composting process. It was hard to handle, easy to spill and it attracted vermin.

I wanted to find a method that was easy to use indoors, because so many of us now live in apartments or houses with small backyards. We replaced the granular mix with a composting spray that uses Effective Microbes (EMs) to break down food waste.

It also had to look good, so we made the Urban Composter™ a slick contemporary design rather than an everyday ugly bucket. We wanted you to be happy to have an Urban Composter™ on view in the kitchen.

So how do I use the Urban Composter™?

Just lift the lid and add your scraps (even meat or fish). Give your scraps a spray of Compost Accelerator and the fermenting process begins immediately. In just a few days you can drain off your home-made 100% organic fertilizer from the tap. Dilute the liquid, add to your plants and watch your garden grow.

When the bucket is full, simply drain the remaining liquid. Take the remaining pulp out to your garden or balcony and dig it in to some soil. People on balconies can use a pot filled with soil.  Leave the pulp to settle for 5-7 weeks. After that, your compost will then be ready to spread on the garden, top dress your lawn or add to your plant pots.

The Urban Composter™ is clean, and eco-friendly with a large 4 gallon capacity. Each bucket comes in light grey , with a choice of lid colors, to match your decor.

The thing I love about the Urban Composter™ is that it is attractive enough to have on show in your kitchen or utility room, encouraging and reminding you to keep composting . The anaerobic composting process means that food you put into the bucket doesn’t give off a foul-smelling odor  The solid seal on the bucket ensures a tight fit, so no smells, spills or flies.

I leave my bucket in a convenient location in the kitchen, but it could equally find a place in another easy-to-reach place like the laundry, garage or a balcony.  What you end up with is simply rich and nutritious soil conditioner – straight from The Urban Composter™ – just the way mother nature intended it!”
