Compost cages are practical solutions to converting your organic waste into valuable compost. These space saving, smell free compost systems can be used in homes, restaurants, accommodations and even offices.
Compost cages are very easy to use and the innovative structure means you do not need to turn compost like you normally would with other systems.
How to use Alam Santi’s compost cage system.
Compost: Preparation Materials
Four ingredients are required for fast-cooking hot compost: nitrogen, carbon, air, and water. Together, these items feed microorganisms, which speed up the process of conversion of waste into valuable compost.
Carbon, which is dry organic materials, is used to cover your compost, reducing smells and providing habitat for the microorganisms to thrive in your compost cage. Keep a waterproof, covered container full of carbon material near your compost cage for easy access. It is important to keep your carbon materials dry before you use them.
Composting is a great way to repurpose scraps collected after cooking, leaves, paper and other organic materials. Keep a container to collect your food scraps or go fancy and install this compost chute into your kitchen. These scraps are perfect to start your composting process.
