Project: Compost Bin Construction

To enable all of the green waste generated to be disposed of and reused we have constructed a pair of compost bins by recycling old donated pallets.

Having seen compost bins being constructed from old pallets on Gardeners World we set about using some old pallets that we had been donated into our own composting point.

Working out where to locate them away from the houses, we set about converting the pallets into a functional, usful and accessible recycling point for the green waste that will be generated from the orchard.

The roof tiles had been left over from the outdoor classroom so the only purchase was some marine ply and hinges for the roof.

A very cheap useful and fun project to be able to do with a bit of head scratching and different ideas being put forward as to the best design to use, ending up with a mix of the different suggestions coming forward.
