Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • PVC Pipes
  • Compost In Bin/Cage
  • Hand Drill

Cut the PVC pipe so it runs the whole length of your compost, leaving about 5 inches sticking out on each end. Using the drill, drill a few holes into the PVC pipes.

Drive each pipe through different areas of your compost and your compost cage. This will allow air to travel into those areas of your compost. Aerating your compost helps to speed up the decomposing process. The oxygen is used by the bacteria within the compost to multiply and this speeds up the whole process.
