Compost tumbler compost removal? Answered

Some of the compost tumblers make it look like a pain to remove the finished compost. Any tips or advice about this?



Turn the tumbler hatch downward, put a wheelbarrow under the tumbler, release the hatch. Or some equivalent operation, depending on the design of the tumbler. Or you could go with a non-tumbling compost pile and shovel the ready-to-use compost out from the bottom of the pile. Depending on how you set up the pile, that may or may not be more work.
