I have compost bin around 4ftx4ftx4ft just for 2 adult. Also we have vegetable and fruit garden and eat a lot fruit & vegetable.

This size is good for two and for occasional visitors. I empty receptacle every 14 days, so there are at least 4 receptacle or more.
And work just fine, no problem.

Hi,

I'm new here. Firstly, hurray for The Humanure Handbook and all the info and community here :-).

I have a quick question ~ I'm going to be building compost bins for a family of two (1xadult 1 x7yr old).

5ftx5ft seems a bit much, though we have veg beds and grass clippings and are raw vegan with lots of fruit & veg peel etc to add.

So...I am thinking of making the containers around 4ftx4ftx4ft. Does that sound about right? Anyone else got a system going for just 2?

We have space for 5x5ft but 4x4ft would also fit in better. It's going in the front garden, lol.

Thanks for any input!

Catherine
