I suggest visiting Kailash Ecovillage in SE Portland. I visited the community in July. They have an excellent, high volume compost system. I was impressed and yes a bit envious. I think they have 12 or so 4x4x4 bins surounding a square courtyard. They built with cinder blocks. The system can be rat proof with a lid. Here is some info about it: http://www.kailashecovillage.org/recycling/ Here is a picture of the compost courtyard being built http://www.kailashecovillage.org/?attachment_id=514 and http://www.kailashecovillage.org/?attachment_id=576 Contact: kailashecovillage [at] gmail.com I manage our compost system here at CoHoEcovillage in Corvallis. We use pallets to build our bins. We have enough bins (about 16) that the compost ages almost a year before use so the result is beautiful. We don't turn. Temperatures run 120 to 140 degrees F. For more details contact me directly. The system is based on the book http://humanurehandbook.com
