Composting is a natural and useful process, however, in an urban environment, people tend to avoid doing it. Composting can be seen as a complicated, unhygienic process and compost bins rarely complement the surrounding environment.

“Till Zero“ has created compost bin that agrees with the urban landscape and is designed with end-user in mind, to make the process easy, clean and clutter-free. Use of “Till Zero” compost bin is not messy, it looks good and it is in a size of standard city waste container.  

“Till Zero” compost bin is hand made by Latvian craftsmen and it is made from environmentally friendly materials.

Hygiene

It is well known that compost can attract vermin and other unwelcomed visitors that feed on food scraps. To keep compost vermin free, it is important to follow what products user puts in the bin and how compost bin has been designed.

“Till Zero” compost bin is made in two levels. The upper level is tightly closed by the lid and it contains the freshly added compost. Its bottom part is made from a metal plate that has holes in it. It prevents newly added organic material from falling into the bottom container, but at the same time, it drains the excess moisture.

For additional safety, it is possible to order compost bin with additional sieve enclosure on top and on sides of the bin. However, this has to be discussed with “Till Zero”.

 

Materials used

Composting process is closely related to high temperatures and moist that develops during the breakdown of the organic matter in the bin. Under these conditions materials that the bin is made out of are crucial. “Till Zero” compost bin is made out of wood and metal. Metal has been coated so it wouldn’t be harmed by corrosion. However, wood that is used for the bin has been specially burnt and imbued with oil. This is a method that was used by our ancestors to protect the wood from rotting and insects and extend its lifecycle.

Compost bin warranty is two seasons, but actually, it can be used much longer.

 

Design

The compost bin has been created and tested by us at “Till Zero”. Its tow level compartment design ensures that the organic matter can be mixed during the process of breakdown and the end result is even compost. Excess moisture is collected on the bottom and it can be released by opening of the cork. Classic compost bin has standard waste container dimensions, but it is possible to order double the size of it. Three different tone wooden finish bins can be ordered. If there is a wish for some specific color, it can be discussed with “Till zero”. For custom orders write to us on tillzero@tillzero.com
