Which composter is for me?

Which composter is for me?


Interested in composting but confused about which one to use? Well you are not the first so here we will give you a couple of pointers to help you get started.

Before you choose your composter, it is important to remember that composting requires effort to do properly so the best method is always the one that is most convenient for you. There are many different systems to choose from – from the home made pallet bin to expensive electronic composters – so depending on the space you have available, the types of materials you want to compost and the amount of effort you want to put in, there is a composting system for you.


To help you with this decision we have developed a Composting Traffic Light Chart that considers the different composters under the following headings:

  • Space available
  • Cost
  • Capacity
  • Time required to maintain
  • Takes Food waste

We have lots more information on the different Composting Systems that are commonly used in Ireland.

Hope this information helps and happy composting!
