Composting Project

We are excited to announce that Wayne SWCD is starting a Composting Project!

*Bare With Us, We are learning as we go!*

The purpose is to help inform anyone who is interested in composting and for those who are not sure how to get started. We plan on having a webinar via Zoom (or hopefully in person) in the Spring of 2022. We will keep this page up to date with pictures and videos as we continue with this process.

Overview of our Composter:

Keep compost and organic waste separated easily with the Dual Chamber compost tumbler on two-leg stand. Two compartments store fresh organic waste away from older waste for high-quality compost. Perfect for small yards and to avoid mixing organic waste with traditional compost bins. Dual green doors provide easy access to both sides.

  • Dual green access doors for easier access

  • Green stand to match the access door

  • Spins easily on sturdy stand

  • 43 Gallon dual chamber

  • 5.75 cu ft. in total storage
