    Green Cone In-ground Composting System - Making Recycling Easy

    No turning. Empty it just once a year. The composting solution for people wanting to compost kitchen scraps but don't want to deal with the regular turning and distributing of compost. Using the Green Cone System, you can eliminate most of your kitchen waste, reducing your family's trash by 20%.

    The patented design of the unit utilizes a solar heating effect between the inner and outer cones to promote air circulation, which facilitates the growth of beneficial micro-organisms and the desirable aerobic digestion process. The household food waste is converted into water, carbon dioxide and a small amount of residue. Because over 90% of the waste material in the Green Cone is absorbed safely as water by the soil, the Green Cone only needs to be cleaned once every few years when treated with care.

    What can I put in?

    The solar-heated Green Cone eliminates your cooked and uncooked kitchen food waste, including:

    • Fish
    • Red Meat & Poultry
    • All Bones
    • Bread
    • Fruit including peelings
    • Vegetables including peelings
    • Dairy produce
    • Cooked food scraps
    • Crushed egg shells
    • Tea bags
    • Animal excrement

    Virtually the only exceptions are bulk amounts of food related materials that require a very long time to breakdown, namely: cooking oil/fat and the hard shells of nuts and seafood, such as oysters and crabs.

    How important is the placement of the Green Cone?

    The Green Cone converts food waste primarily into water and carbon dioxide. The water produced must be able to drain freely away, otherwise the Green Cone will become anaerobic (without oxygen) and will cease to work. It is therefore crucial to install your Green Cone in an area of good drainage. Under no circumstances should the base of the basket be below the water table or where water gathers.

    What will I need for assembly?

    Assembly will take you about an hour to complete. You'll need a shovel to dig a hole about two feet deep, in order to bury the bottom mesh section of the composter. Next, attach the top section to the bottom with metal screws. A power screwdriver that will make the job easier. Click for in depth assembly information.

    What happens next?

    Once the compost fills up, in about 1-2 years, unscrew the top section and remove it, pull out the basket from the ground, and distribute the rich compost that you've made.

    You may want to stop adding new material a couple of weeks before you empty it to ensure all the scraps inside are fully decomposed.
