Hello...
We live off grid and I love our lifestyle, however I've never really liked the task of walking (during winter months) to take out the household composting items to the compost bin each day. In the very north of New England we have 3 or 4 feet of snow to battle through most of the winter; and what should be a nice walk to the compost bin turns into a fearful expedition during the winter!!
So, when I saw this composting bin, read the information about it, decided to buy... I kind of took a chance when I purchased two of them. BUT... I have to say that this has turned into a brilliant solution to our winter composting dilemma. I have placed both the composting bins inside our garage... we fill them daily, turn them and we have perfect compost that doesn't freeze and will be perfectly ready to use on our spring garden in our green house. This way of composting is easy to get to for us and we don't have to trudge daily through the snow to try and find our composting bin under the snow!
The compost barrel is a delight, the opening is large and has a strong, easily turned lid. The bases are sturdy, and they can be moved easily even by me (and I'm not too strong)! The wheels really work well!
So, if you want my advice, these are good value, they really do turn scraps into perfect compost and they can be used outside in the summer months (or winter) or they can be used inside your garage or basement during the winter. There's no smell at all, they're clean to use and they look good. Also they're made from recyclable materials... they're a great product and well worth the money!! Good job!! Thank you... :)

We have composted before using compost piles and thought this would be more efficient. Received tumbler and added some material we had already partially composted. It was IMPOSSIBLE to turn. Reason: the rollers did not match up with the tumbler barrel. Contacted the manufacturer and they sent a replacement roller section. It matched up better with the barrel but it was still extremely difficult (close to impossible) to turn ... even by a 6-foot male in good condition. Very disappointing since we are both "green" and vegetarians ... and it did not live up to the comments ("ease of use" as described by other owners). At this point we are not sure if we would take a chance on an "in-kind" replacement.

      Seems to be everything it was billed to be by way of design and function.

      Label on the lid says made in USA. Flip the lid over and Made in Canada is written in the plastic. Which is it?

        Comments about Compost Wizard 90 Gallon Recycled Plastic Compost Tumbler:

        My friend and I bought three of these together to save on shipping. One came damaged but the company was amazing on the response to correct that. I kept two of these and my friend kept one. One of my bins is easier to turn because the lid, when threaded lines up perfectly so that you can use it as a handle to turn. The second one's lid does not line up perfectly so unless it is not screwed on tight, one cannot use the lid as a handle. That is frustrating. I probably could have called the company about this but did not since they already had helped to correct the other damaged item. I keep these compost bins very full so they are difficult to turn. However, I found I do not need to turn mine (in the winter at least) because they are full of red worms which are doing all the work for me. And I read that worms don't liked to be turned because it disturbs them. So they are wonderful for me and in keeping out rodents and raccoons. Love my composting! I already have two batches produced of rich dark soil. YAY!

          So far the only negative is the ability to roll the compost bin easily. I had half a barrel ready to put in. 90 gallons is a lot and it takes a little muscle to load and roll...But then I am 67 years old and not as strong as I was at 40. I am happy with this tumbler and short of falling apart in six months, I am sure I will be happy with it then.

          Customer Q & A

          7 Questions About This Product
          Q: "how do you turn it?"
          A: This compost is on a base that has rollers that the barrel lays on so turning this is as simple as pushing on the bin.
          Q: "Can I add to the bin daily or do I need to wait until the first batch has completely decomposed?"
          A: You can add daily until its 75% full, you stop and wait 2-4 weeks until it finishes. Remember to rotate a couple of times a week.
          Q: "How do I water it evenly?"
          A: You do not need to use water with this compost tumbler.
          Q: "How do you empty it?"
          A: The item has a hole with screws and if you open it and turn it around it will be empty.
          Q: "How long does it take for the compost to be ready?"
          A: Once it is 75% full it will take around 2-4 weeks.
          Q: "How long will it take to break down 12 cubic ft?"
          A: This will depend on the temperature that the compost bin will be exposed to. If it has the perfect insulation it will take 2-4 weeks.
          Q: "Where is this product produced? Is it made in the USA or is it an import?
          A: No, this product is completely manufactured in Lake City, Pennsylvania.
