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. 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 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
  • 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 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.

Great system

I wanted an easy to use composting solution that would take all of my food waste and I wouldn't have to worry about killing worms or doing much to it. This urban composter is that solution. Might need another bin whilst it ferments for 2 weeks but just dig it into the garden and start again. No more smelling big bin and no more waste going to landfill.

Composting made Easy!

Despite the bin filing up quite quickly, and a freezer filled with food scraps (the bin needs to be shut for 2 weeks to allow for breakdown), we love using this urban composter. There are no terrible decomposing smells - and even when the liquid is drained and the bin emptied, the smells aren't too bad. It's very easy to use and the fact that every food scrap (except bones) can be placed in it, it's so good for the environment. We may just need to buy another bin to make for better logistics.

So easy to use

I love that this composter takes citrus, meat and bread etc (the chickens can only eat so many crusts). I thought it might be a bit big at first but the 16lt is perfect for our family of 4 and it is so easy to use.
