A MOTHER reader decides to build a recycled compost tumbler using a 55-gallon drum, an old hospital bed frame and rollers, an old hinge and scrap aluminum.
Build a recycled compost tumbler using a 55-gallon drum, hospital bed parts, a hinge and aluminum scraps.
Here is a picture of a compost tumbler I built out of recycled material: one old 55-gallon drum, an old hospital bed frame and rollers, one old hinge and some scrap pieces of aluminum. The only things I bought were the latches when I decided to build a recycled compost tumbler. Since this picture was taken, I have added two rings around the barrel to keep it from walking from left to right. It works great!
