Vermicomposting bins play the biggest role in the worm composting process. While you may have all the materials needed, without the bin, it is impossible to do it. Here are some information to get you familiarized with the vermicomposting bin.
Vermicomposting bins can either be homemade or commercially made. Normally, those who no longer have time would prefer to have the commercial bin. For commercial bins, you will find a lot of offers in the internet. We have the tumbling compost bin, indoor kitchen composter, stackable worm bin, spruce wood composter, rotating composter, can o worms round vermicomposter, counter top compost pail and much more. All products come in different prices and different designs. There are commercial vermicomposting bins that are odor free. It is important that if you buy a commercial bin, you have this feature as you wouldn’t want your house to have foul odor and it should be easy to clean. You will also consider the number of worms and the amount of organic materials that you will put in the bin. Of course, the more worms, the larger bin you have to buy.
Meanwhile, if you have all the time in the world, you can do your own vermicomposting bins. All you need to have is a plastic container with a lid, newspapers and magazines. Drill at least 20-25 holes (the size of the holes should be ¼ inch) at the side, bottom and at the lid of the container to allow air inside. Then if you’re done with the plastic tub, have the newspapers and magazines cut into strips and soak them into water to make the bedding really comfortable for the Red Wiggler worms.
Whichever you choose to have, it’s ok. What matters is that you know how to maintain it after you bought or made the bin.
