Which bucket should you choose?
Green Space now offers 2 size options: the Standard Composting Bucket and Mini Composting Bucket.
STANDARD COMPOSTING BUCKET (20L)
[diameter: 300mm | height: 405mm]
On average, a household of 4 will fill up one standard (20L) bucket in 2 weeks time. (ave. 10kgs of food waste)
MINI COMPOSTING BUCKET (16L)
[diameter: 300mm | height: 332mm]
A smaller household can choose the mini bucket (16L) which can hold up to 8kgs of food waste.
Should you get a STARTER PACK or a COMPOST KIT?
We highly recommend having 2 buckets (i.e., our STARTER PACK)
1. Collect & layer food waste with bokashi bran in bucket #1 until it's full
2. Keep bucket #1 and let it ferment for 2 weeks; so you start collecting/layering in bucket #2
3. After 2 weeks - bucket #1 is done fermenting, ready to go to for composting; bucket #2 will start fermenting this time.
4. Clean up bucket #1 so you can start layering your food waste & bokashi bran into it again.
If your food waste generation can fill up 1 bucket in just 1 week then you will need 3 buckets to rotate.
You can always get a Compost Kit to give Bokashi Composting a try. See how much time it would take you to fill up your bucket with food waste and have a feel of the ART OF LAYERING Food Waste & Bokashi Bran into your bucket. You can always DIY your second bucket or order when you are ready! You may also opt to subscribe to our composting service here.
