Rotating Barrel Composter
If your composting operation is small and you
neither relish nor have the time for turning
garbage, then you'll find this composter suited
to your needs. The barrel is rotated several
times whenever new materials are added. It is
constructed with a minimum of hand-powered
tools, and is not difficult or time-consuming to
build. It will cost about $60 to build providing
you use second-hand materials.

Obtain a good 45-gallon drum that has not
had any toxic chemicals in it.
Ask for a 'food grade' barrel. It must be
unpainted on the inside and de-rusted. Add a
protective coating inside.
A plastic drum can also be used.
