Compost: Piles vs. Bins

Piles or bins for your vegetable garden compost? Does it really matter? Well, depending on where you live and how experienced you are, maybe not. But if you’re just starting out, and especially if you live in a municipality or suburban setting, compost piles may in fact not even be allowed because of local ordinances.

Compost bins are actually a neat, clean and tidy way of containing your compost, and bins help to keep any unwanted animals out of it. Bins also help to keep the moisture inside, are ventilated to circulate air through them, and they are usually dark in color which attracts heat from the sunlight, all of which help to speed up the formation of compost material.
