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

Urban Composter City is a new smaller design Bokashi bucket that maximises capacity and uses an easy to handle Bokashi spray. It is a perfect size for couples, small families and apartment living and small enough to fit comfortably under the sink.  Features a new improved easy-clip lid and internal tap design!

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.

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.

dimensions: 25cm diameter x 26cm high approximately. Approx 6L capacity. 

Compost accelerator available to purchase separately.

    Compact, airtight

    As the description states, a conveniently compact size to fit under the sink. The lid seal is airtight, preventing any smell in the kitchen. To press down each layer of contents as added, try using an old saucepan lid.
    This and bokashi powder/flakes work well to start anaerobic compost, even in an apartment. I tip the contents into a compost tumbler when the bokashi bucket is full, but apparently they can also be buried or kept for longer in the bokashi bucket.
