Worm Composting



It is easy to make your own worm composting unit - people have made them from old car tyres, plastic boxes, wooden boxes, old chest freezers etc. Any container that keeps the worms secure and protected can suffice if you can provide the right conditions for the composting worms.

The two usual designs of worm bin are stackable (such as using tyres or drilled nesting plastic boxes) and single container (such as a large wooden box or old freezer or bath).
You will find lots of information about worm composting to suit your needs on the internet, including on www.stopfoodwaste.ie

Waste Down have a range of factory-manufactured wormeries for sale also. These have all been tested for optimal performance, and advice will be given on what is best suited to your needs.
We also can design and build a composting strategy suitable to your needs – please contact us with your enquiries
