Backyard Organic Waste Digester
Odours shouldn't be much of an issue. The digester works via aerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion is the one that causes most of the nasty odours.
You need a significant portion of it above ground so that the sun can warm it up and enhance in the digestion.
The idea is that you shouldn't need to empty it. There are a few factors that affect this. If bin is not sized correctly for the amount of waste going in, it will fill up before the waste can break down. One BIG mistake we made was using those biodegradable poo bags. Our dogs do their biz on our walks as our yard is not fenced and those 'biodegradable' bags while technically biodegradable, take years to break down and are not meant to be in an anaerobic environment such as this bin.
