What you'll need
A closeable container, I purchased this one at Costco for $15.
Dremel Tool or Hand Saw
A hoe or something to toss your compost
A container to transport your scraps in(optional)
Step 1: Cut holes and screen them up
For placement, I've found that a little sun is ideal for my compost, it doesn't dry out being in a very humid climate, but the heat of the sun helps break things down. If you find your bin is drying out, put a tarp over the top or place in the shade. Dry materials won't break down as fast.
