Great article! In our area - Contra Costa Waste Authority offers a discount on compost bins ordered through their website. See this link for details:  
We have bought two bins over the last 5 years from them - the first was the Bio Stack bin like yours. The bin they now offer is the Soilsaver at a cost of $62. So we now have two bins side by side with compost in different stages of decay! We add the finished compost to our veggie garden and it has been very productive this year!

Thanks for the tip on the compost bins! I think my in-laws got theirs through the Waste Authority themselves. Two bins would certainly be nice to have. Happy composting!

I liked how you mentioned that you had a different bin for the type of trash you had. It is important to consider this so you get your waste removed right. We just moved to a different town and wanted to know how to start managing our waste, so I'm glad I found your page.

It's great that compost can improve the texture of soil and recycle items so they don't end up in landfills. My cousin and his wife are trying to find ways to live more environmentally friendly. I would imagine that composting could be a good way to do this and that finding a monthly garden bag collection in Brisbane could be good.
