Here’s a concept in vermi-bin design that we
are so happy to promote, as a project for local
communities, schools, and people interested to
venture into vermi-composting (or plain
composting). It has at least twice the positive
impact to our environment.
This cheap and eco-friendly way of composting
saves empty plastic pails and buckets from
landing into our
dumpsters and landfills.
At the same time, the project helps you
create a healthy
source of nourishment for your plants,
vegetables, and other crops in the garden,
or where natural absorbable nutrients
for plant growth is required.
It helps to save our taxes too.
We hope that you enjoy collecting these
empty plastic containers from the
community, as much as we do, for it
gives us a chance to meet people and
gain new friends at the same time.

Trace the bottom of the bucket or pail
on scrap cardboard.
Normally these plastic composters would
have a hole, at the bottom, to pass the
liquid leachate, or compost drippings.
In this case, an inch or more of old
cardboard were used to line the bottom.
The cardboard will help absorb the
excess moisture that will otherwise make
the bed soggy and dripping.
composter must breathe, and expel the
heat that might build up inside. Here a
soldering iron was used to make the vent
holes at the top-sides. A hand drill
will also do a good job.
Urban Composting -
Eggshells are made of calcium. Crush
dried eggshells and place this above
your cardboard layer. This is your acid
buffer. Should your compost turn sour,
the acid will dissolve the calcium from
the eggshell, helping to bring it to a
more neutral level.
I prefer to put
just enough vermicast to cover this
layer. Vermicast, from worms, is a
natural deodorizer. You can also put
soil to cover the layer, if you still
don't have vermicast.
This next layer was made with dried
leaves from last years autumn (garden or
lawn trimmings will do just as well).
Sprinkle this layer with some vermicast too
Add some dried and crushed eggshells to
naturally control the acid level and
help keep the heap neutral.
The next layer is made up of old
The newspaper should help absorb wet,
stale or soggy food leftovers. In this
case, it was a vegetable, and fish
noodle soup. It doesn't contain any
oils, beef, chicken, pork or any other
meat stuffs, except for fish.
Vermicast was sprinkled over to help
absorb the dripping.
Some fruit scraps was later added onto
You can add some dried crushed eggshells
to this layer-pack as well.
Fold the sides of the newspaper over
towards the center to close and make it
into a "package".
Add vermicast to fill the empty pockets,
and top this with a layer of leaves,
lawn or garden trimmings
The leaves would help to control the
ammonia that might build-up during the
Level the layer with vermicast and
crushed eggshells to help keep the
acidity level within tolerable levels.
Eggshells contain calcium and is a
natural way to control acidity.
All paper material types can be added
into your composter.
Stackable composters from recycled
plastic buckets and pails for the home
and garden, provides you with natural
nutrients for the growing requirements
of your herbs, vegetables, ornamental
plants and trees. It is also the most
economical and natural way to rejuvenate
These are some of our basic scraps from
the yard and the home, that goes well
with a vermi-composting project: eggs
shells, fruits and fruit peelings,
starch foods like pasta, potatoes or
rice, leaves, old newspaper and all
types of scrap paper-based materials,
cartons, lawn and garden trimmings
