I bought 1 of these last year for composting leaves and grass clippings. I had a home made wire bin also. This year I threw out the home made wire bin and bought 2 more GeoBins. They are wonderful, and work great if you follow the instructions and make a hot compost pile, turning frequently. I do add some minor garden clippings to 1 bin while leaving the others to older clippings/leaves etc only. The only complaint I have is it's a 2 person job to assemble these bins as it keep curling back up on you, and the stakes provided are not sufficient to keep my bins open on hard packed dirt area I have them in as they are too short. I bought 3 long garden stakes and use those in addition to the supplied stakes. Very easy to turn your pile, just pluck out the stakes, lift bin off the pile, place and stake next to it and fork over the compost. Just turned one of the piles today. Love these things.
