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

Completely air tight so no smells or flies and looks great in any kitchen setting. 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 (including meat) into nutrient-rich fertilizer right in your kitchen, 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 made from recycled plastics
  • 1 x Compost Accelerator spray
  • 1 x Compost Accelerator refill
  • 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.

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 fresh water and vinegar as this won't harm microbes inside composter.

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

Great easy to reduce landfill and help my garden at the same time.

I bought 2 of these bins several months ago and I think they're great. No smell in my kitchen and all our food scraps go in there, greatly reducing what we put in the garbage. We have a lot more worms in the garden too. We did have a leak once, but once I adjusted the tap I've had no more problems. I keep a piece of paper towel just poking out under the bin where the tap is so that if it leaks again I'll know straight away. Great system.

Leaking, need help

The apart smells pretty bad and the bin started leaking soon after use. Strangely it isn't coming from the tap its forming a ring around the bottom of brown liquid. It's pretty disgusting, all over my kitchen. I've had to move it outside
I had a Bokashi bin years ago and it was so great, never had a problem.
What's going on with this one? I'm really disappointed.

love our urban composter

We have found our Urban Composter to be a great way to lessen the waste we send to landfill, while also allowing us to make bokashi tea to fertilise our garden with. We then add the bokashi contents to our worm farm of bury in the garden to add nutrients to the soil. Very easy to use and you can't smell the contents when the lid is closed.

Thoroughly unimpressed

I was so looking forward to this product as I'm a student who moves flats every year ordinary composting wasn't an option. But I am disgusted by it, I've only had it a week, not only does the accelerator spray smell foul (this smell lingers for a while) but so does my kitchen now only after a week! This was supposed to be smell free and it's so bad I'm afraid it's going to start to attract pests. 100% would not buy again nor recommend, will be putting outside. Really disappointed.
