Trash Composter

Remember that trash composter mentioned a couple of blogs ago? Well, here is
is the scoop.

I found it at Greenfeet, a great site! They sell all kinds of green products.

Anyway, back to the composter: Nature Mill Plus Composter – $299.00
Fully automatic and odor free. The perfect solution for those who want to compost
but don’t have outdoor space for a pile.

It produces a batch (about 10 lbs/4.5 kg) of rich organic fertilizer every 2 weeks.
A red light will tell you when to empty it. Just open the door and remove the
compost. You can add waste items at any time up to 120 lbs (55 kb) a month. Talk
about recycling!

Waste items are processed continuously. Every 4 hours, a small electric motor mixes
the compost, which breaks into clumps, compacts the waste and improves the air flow.
The computer controller determines the frequency and duration of mixing. The internal
reactor chamber maintains a true “hot composting” temperature of 140 F (60C) for
several days. The heat neutralizes pathogens such a e.coli and prevents seed
germination. It exceeds US EPA PART 503 guidelines for compost safety. It is
believed to be the only compost machine, tumbler, or other home use device which
complies with the EPA rules. The cure tray is no more than 100 degrees F (38C) about
body temperature when you empty it.

The unit runs on either 110 or220 volts, plugs into a standard wall outlet, and it UL
and CE compliant. It draws about 5 kwh per month, which costs approximately $0.50
a month. About as much energy as a night light. In comparison to what the diesel
truck uses hauling the same amount of waster to a landfill —- PLEASE!

    Ingenious! After I get done catching up, I’ll follow your link out for more information. I’m assuming this is something that sits outside. My sister is big into composting, but they have a acre or two. With a small, city house perhaps this is a solution!

    They have one that sits outside but the one here actually goes under a countertop!

    I have been using the NatureMill composter since last year and I’m loving it. BTW, the NatureMill Plus Composter link that listed above is broken. Try this link:

    Everyone should compost!
