How To: Make a Shipping Pallet Compost Bin

Growing up, our family’s composting system consisted of a compost heap enclosed with a fence. Nothing fancy, but it did the job. It wasn’t until recently that we started seeing manufactured compost bins, many of which are, in our opinion, not all that great looking and can be pricey. That’s we’re excited about this DIY combining our love of reused pallets and composting

Materials
• 4 similarly sized shipping pallets (look for them at shipping and receiving warehouses)
• 4 L-brackets
• 2 strap hinges
• 1 latch
• Screws to attach the hardware
