Solterra has two large Compostumbler brand of rotating composters. We have 
learned that if just anybody puts garbage into them, we end up with a lot of 
smelly garbage, not compost. Compost should NEVER smell. That happens when it 
not mixed with the right components, air, or too much water. Only those who 
know the right mixture and wetness should put anything in that type of 
composter, so we have a closed containers nearby for people to put in garbage 
and those 
who know the mixture enter the garbage and dried leaves, shredded paper or 
other dry matter into the composter. 
I recommend a good composting book such as "The Rodale Book of Composting" or 
"Backyard Composting."
