Hi David,

We compost also but we use the standard stationary bins (5) and a rotating bin when the temperature is above 40 degrees. How many people live in your community and how many of them do you estimate actively compost? Do you compost the food scraps from the community dinners also? How many times a week is that?

We have been using the "Bokashi" system for years and find it effective. All you need is a few airtight buckets...The process can handle just about any food scraps, including eggshells and chicken carcasses, but NOT plastics, and some items like large bones and avocado skins & pits don't decompose.
