The new Urban Composter bokashi bucket has some clever attributes to help you compost more.  Choose your lid colour.

Completely air tight so no smells or flies and looks great in any kitchen. All types of food scraps can be added including greens, meat, fish, citrus, dairy, coffee grounds, wilted flowers, egg shells and more. Turns organic scraps and leftovers into nutrient-rich fertilizer right on your bench top, with no bad smells!

The Urban Composter is an anaerobic composting system that uses microorganisms to ferment food scraps so they can quickly break down when buried into soil.  The result is a rich & nutritious soil conditioner.

The Urban Composter includes:

  • 1 x Urban Composter bucket & lid
  • 1 x drain tray and tap
  • Instructions.

The Urban Composter system applies the Bokashi micro-organism from a spray bottle, so there is no need to cart around and store the sawdust/grain option that is used as a carrier for the micro-organism.  That said, you can use either form of Bokashi powder or spray bottle with either system.   Compost accelerator needs to be purchased separately.

Urban Composter spray uses the patented EM-1 Effective Micro-organism and is vegan.

you are making a difference:

  • Return your food scraps to the earth to enrich the soil, reduce waste and reduce carbon emissions.

how does it work:

  • Cut up your food scraps and throw them into the Urban Composter bucket.
  • Spray Compost Accelerator onto the scraps every time they are added (recommend 4-5 sprays evenly over scraps).  Bokashi grain mix can also be used if desired.
  • Push scraps down to compact the layers each time and ensure lid is sealed.
  • In just a few days you can drain off the soil conditioner from the tap.
  • When the bucket is full, simply drain all the remaining liquid, dilute it and add to plants.  Dig the remaining pulp into some soil and leave it to settle for 6-8 weeks.

  • The treated soil is ready to spread on the garden, top dress your lawn or add to your plant pots for some great results.

  • When emptied clean only with Citrus Natural Cleaner spray as this won't harm microbes inside composter, or fresh water.

diameter: 29cm diameter, 40cm high at back, 35cm high at front. Approx 16L capacity.

    Disappointed

    The tap leaks and it is very smelly. We have tried to use more spray and have looked up various troubleshooting options but even so it is very unpleasant to use. The name is possibly also a bit misleading. It is not a composter but rather prepares food for compost. If I had somewhere to bury food scraps I wouldn't need this product - I would just have a compost heap!

    Perfect size for storage

    It’s a good size but the tap leaks where you attach it so waiting for hubby to seal it more. Apart from that it’s well made and the spray stops the smell and everything seems to be breaking down and will work better when fixed.
