Pallet Compost Bin
Introduction: Pallet Compost Bin
Going green and creating your own compost bin isn’t as hard as you might think. All those grass clippings, plant prunings, and other yard stuff is easily recycled into compost. The project is simple.
You need pallets, wire (to bind them together), some simple tools, and any extra hardware you would like to add for ease of use.
Step 1: Getting It Together. The Lay Out.
Your going to need 4 pallets minimum. If you decide on a slanted base (floor), you’ll need another pallet. Some people may choose a slanted base design to catch the "tea" that your composter produces when watering your compost. The "tea" can be diluted and sprayed on your plants.
We don’t have a slanted base in this design. Simple is easier. We’re going with 3 sides and a door.
Choose your lay out. I don’t need a huge bin, so I opted to stand the sides up to narrow the bins depth. Plus, it gives me a 2×4 side to attach my hinges to.
Step 2: Piecing It Together.
I’ve purchased 14 gauge wire, hinges, and a latch for my bin. If you want to pass on these items, you can still get by with just the wire to bind the pallets together. A make-shift hinge can be made from the wire.
Start with cutting the wire to a workable length, roughly 18", and strap the side and back pallets together by twisting the wire tight. Be careful not to over do it. Too much tension and the wire will break. Two lengths twisted on each corner should be plenty.
Step 3: Adding Some Stability.
I’ve opted to add a landscape pole to the hinge-side of the bin. These pallets are not light and I wanted the hinges to support some of the weight of the door pallet. I had originally thought I was going to put pole in both side pallets, but figured I only need the hinge-side to be supported. I hammer into the ground about 12".
Step 4: Adding the Hardware
Once you’ve finished tying the pallets together. It’s time to add hinges. My hinges were about $6.50 from the Depot. A little better than constucting wire hinges.
Now, we’re ready for the door.
Step 5: The Door.
Before adding the door to the bin, I added a spacer to the bottom by using the left over scrap from the landscaping pole and attaching it with screws. This will provide some ventilation for the compost since all other sides sit on the ground.
Next, attach the door.
Step 6: Optional, More Hardware.
In most cases, you would be done. I, however, need more bling for my bin. I’ve added a latch to keep my 2yr old out the bin.
AND YOU’RE DONE. Or are you.
Step 7: More Stuff.
If you live in a climate that has good to mild humidity, you would be done at this point. However, I live in hell, Phoenix, AZ. Mesa to be precise.
We don’t have much humidity and moisture is what helps to break down the organics in your composter. To effectively do this, we need to add some heavy duty plastic to the bin to help keep some of the moisture in the bin. Moisture and heat are a compost bin’s best friend.
Step 8: Start Your Compost.
I’ve left the plastic off the door. I will have to experiment to see if it works with or without it.
My wife has already been starting a compost bin with a large storage bin from Walmart. Its done a great job. Just not big enough for our needs.
Good luck. I hope this helps you in your green endeavors.

i would have turned all flat sides to inwards so the content has less chance nesting into areas where it needs advanced efforts to be removed again.
else – pretty cool idea!
I have a couple of questions. (1) i live in new york and its pretty humid and it rains occasionally. would it help to put a tarp over it to keep out the rain? Because ive heard that it (the rain) can drain nutrients into the soil. (2) would the compost decompose the pallets?. (3) would it help to staple tarp or plastic to the out side? Thanks

No, you want your compost to be wet (think of a moist sponge). The drier it is, the longer it will take to break down, so it’s best to keep it moist, and allowing it to be rained on is a great way to do that. Don’t worry about any lost nutrients. there are plenty more! And the water filtering down into the soil beneath your bin will encourage worms to move up and help break it down, so that’s a good thing, too. And nailing or stapling on some wire mesh (like 14" hardware cloth from Home Depot) on the inside of the bin will help keep the critters out. The pallets are made from treated lumber and will last for years. My only concern about using pallets is that the chemicals used to treat the wood might leach into the compost. This is why I bought a "Soil Saver" compost bin.
