frequently asked questions

does it smell bad?

Nope! As long as your compost has enough airflow, so it remains aerobic, meaning there is the presence of oxygen it should be fine. Always remember to cover your food scraps with brown material to prevent these smells.

If smells do occur, add more wood chips to mask the smell or reduce your food scraps content.

how long does it take?

This is one question we get a lot, yet the answer ranges widely. Food scraps that have hard parts and generally more fibers take longer to decompose.

A carrot will take much longer to decompose than a grape.

The overall process can take between 1-3 months.

when do you know when the compost is ready?

Great question! Finished compost should look like dark soil with an earthy/foresty smell. It should also not recognize any of the initial ingredients first mixed inside.

It should also be warm to the touch!

what about flies?

Flies are a result of not covering your compost bin and food scraps inside it. Every time you add more food scraps, you should in addition, a layer of brown material, this includes soil, old compost, leaves, or wood shavings.
