Most Efficient and Safest composter on the market today.
In an urban setting, many people have neither the space nor the time to maintain a traditional compost pile in their backyard. Add that to the growing regulations concerning compost piles, neighbor complaints, and unwanted pests..... the Urban Compost Tumbler TM (UCT) fits nicely into an urban setting while getting the job done. Given enough time, all composters and methods work. Given enough oxygen, they simply work better and faster. The most efficient bacteria, called "aerobes", need oxygen to do their work. Without oxygen the aerobes cannot survive and the anaerobes take over slowing decomposition by as much as 90 percent. In addition, the center aeration tube with its cross bar assists in the break up and separation of compost as it is turned preventing the materials from turning into a ball and just sliding back and forth when tumbled.
There are "Four" ingredients that are critical for effective composting of all organic materials: carbon, nitrogen, water, and oxygen. The unique patented core aeration system of the UCT provides the essential oxygen for the aerobic microorganisms and tool free mixing of the composting materials. This near odorless, fully enclosed composter is ideal for both yard and kitchen materials. Many cities now ban or are considering banning open compost piles because of the pest control (e.g. rats, mice, raccoons and insects) and are tuning to fully enclosed composters like the UCT.
The UCT7 is a recycled/reclaimed food grade commodities barrel. Using a rocking motion to build momentum, a FULL UCT7 (shown above) relatively easy to turn. However the composting action will rapidly reduce the content of the barrel to less than half its volume and may require more pressure to turn the unit when all the weight is in the bottom half of the barrel. For those looking for a smaller compost tumbler, this UCT7 is a good choice.
Save big on one composter right now, but even more on two!
If youčre looking for value, buy two tumblers and not only will you save even more money, but you can be loading one composter while the other cooks, doubling your capacity and effectively cutting your composting time in half. Instead of getting compost in as little as 13-days, it will be as little as every 6-7 days by having two composters.
