Country Lore: Cement Mixer Compost Tumbler

An old cement mixer can make a handy compost tumbler, as this reader discovered.


| August/September 2004





I had an old cement mixer that I didn’t use any longer, so I decided to make a compost tumbler out of it. I attached a timer to it that comes on for 10 minutes a day and turns the materials that I have in the bin. It has made a great composter.
