Tumbling composters are easier to turn and manage than a standing pile, but it can be difficult to find a tumbling composter big enough to hold yard waste. This massive drum is one of the largest tumbling composters on the market. Its molded handholds allow you to get a grip to optimize your torque and turn your compost easily. The low profile keeps it from blowing over in high winds, helps keep it out of sight, and makes it convenient for loading and unloading material.
The Compost Wizard's drum can be removed from the base and rolled to your desired location for unloading up to 12 cubic ft. of compost each batch. The 16" twist lid makes it easy to fit yard waste into the container. Fresh compost can be made in just 2-4 weeks. You only have to turn it once a week or after addition of new material.
As with all featured Good Ideas composters, the Dueling Tumbler is manufactured using recycled food-grade polyethylene (PE) in Lake City, Pennsylvania. This plastic is BPA free and FDA approved for contact with edibles, so you know that you aren't adding harmful levels of plastic additives to your family's yard or garden
Setting up the composter is easy. The composter comes fully assembled, so simply place it in a sunny spot (or partial shaded in desert climates) and you're ready to start composting!

Good Ideas, Inc.
Good Ideas, Inc. focuses on selling high quality, sustainable and niche products. They seek out exciting new markets with high potential growth. Founded in 2001 by Greg Cronkhite, Good Ideas has steadily become one of the top composter and rain barrel companies in the US market.
All featured Good Ideas composters are made from 100% recycled polyethelene (LDPE or #1 in the recycling code). They are made in Lake City, PA - so we know they are produced by qualified staff under all federal and state environmental restrictions. Being made in the USA also carries an additional environmental benefit in that the carbon impact of shipping and distribution is much smaller than a composter made overseas!
Home composting drastically reduces the amount of GHGs produced by landfills, as well as our use of fossil fuels from transporting trash and producing fertilizers. We estimate that when a person composts all of their food and yard waste instead of sending it to a landfill, it will save up to 500 lbs of CO2 per year, or 2.5% of the average American’s carbon footprint. Compare that to the fact that growing, shipping, and preparing foods makes up an additional 13% of the US's carbon impact.
In addition to being made from recycled materials, these composters can also be recycled in most municipal recycling programs once they reach the end of their usable life - which should be 10-15 years.
*These estimates for carbon savings were derived from a number of sources. The EPA's EPA's WARM Model provides estimates of GHG avoidance from composting versus landfilling. The EPA's 2012 Municipal Waste Report provides estimates for non-recovered food and yard waste volumes in the US. The EPA also estimates the typical US carbon footprints and the r population data was available from the US Census Bureau.
