The porch compost tumbler sits on a stand for easy turning. There are grooves in the barrel for gripping and turning and the lid is the complete size of this container for easy filling and emptying.

Pretty much all vegetable scraps are fine for piles, along with shredded leaves, grass clippings, finely cut wood chips and bark, garden weeds (unless really persistent – that I do not put bindweed in the compost but I do add dandelions), cardboard and even a few newspaper (although you might want to check that the newspaper is printed with biodegradable soy inks first).
