Easiest DIY Compost Bin Idea

Save money, benefit your garden, and help preserve the environment—all at the same time—with this simple DIY project. It’s a win-win all around.

Compost bins are simple to make yourself with just two simple items.

To make compost, you’ll need a compost bin. And luckily, we’ve come up with the easiest way to make one. All you need is a trash can and a drill. We’ve also devised some important composting tips and tricks to help you get started.

What You Need:

  • Trash can
  • Drill
  • Paddle drill bit

Step 1: Prep the Bin

If using an older trash can, thoroughly rinse it out before using. You don’t want any lingering remnants of nonbiodegradable materials in your bin. If using a brand-new bin, skip the wash, but remove any tags or packaging.

Step 2: Drill Holes

Attach paddle bit to the drill. Starting a few inches from the lid, drill a hole into the trash can. Space another hole approximately 3 inches from the first hole. Continue drilling until you have rows of holes that span both the width and length of your bin. Repeat on all sides.

Step 3: Clean Out Bin

Once again, thoroughly wash and dry the trash can. This time you’re cleaning out any plastic shards that were created during the drilling process.
