  • Made in Australia

Urban Composter Bokashi Bucket 16L - Black. Urban Composter is a stylish Australian designed and made Bokashi bucket that maximises capacity and uses a convenient fermenting spray. Made from recycled plastic with an improved easy-clip lid and internal tap design! This is for the bin only - see here for the Compost accelerator or a complete kit.

Select your colour choice above.

Features

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 made from recycled plastics
  • 1 x black coloured 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 for $9.95.

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.

Compost accelerator available to purchase separately.

Brand story

Luke Gregory designed the Urban Composter while studying Industrial Design at university. Luke is passionate about the environment and wanted an easy way to stop food scraps going into landfill. 

He didn’t like the fact that most bokashi systems aren’t where you need them. Most people don’t want bokashi composting systems in their kitchen, near food. Luke felt that if people could compost kitchen scraps in their kitchen, using a simple system, more people would do it.

Luke researched an entirely new anaerobic composting method that didn’t require  bokashi bran and discovered that he could use a citrus-based spray with Effective Micro-organisms to start the composting process.

Now Urban Composters come in two sizes, and (as well as the spray bottles) are made from recycled plastic. Has composting ever been this easy?

    Works well, not too smelly

    I had some concerns about smell but have found that there’s no detectable odour when the lid is on, and when removing the lid it just smells a bit like yoghurt. It’s very simple to use with the bokashi grains - we just add the compost and then sprinkle a layer of grains over it and seal the lid until next time.

    I’m kind of lazy and I keep it in a cupboard under my sink, so I’ve started using a small 2L ice cream container to temporarily place food scraps until there are enough to justify bending down to get to it and adding the grains (this also means I add a whole layer at a time instead o opening it up for individual carrot tops etc)

    It took about three weeks to start producing a liquid from the tap, which we are now diluting and using as a liquid fertiliser.

    We decided to get a second bin so we can alternate them.

    As a bonus, it’s made from recycled materials, so it prevents waste from going to landfill in more ways than one.

    Works great

    I haven't had any issues with leaking or smells like some of the other reviews. It's easy to use and great for apartment living so I don't have to worry about smells in my home.

    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.

    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!
