Can you keep a compost bin in the garage?
Also to know is, can you compost in your garage?
If for some reason you cannot make compost in your garden or yard, you can do it in a heated place such as a garage. You can also add worms to your compost bin so your compost is ready sooner.
Beside above, does a compost bin need a lid? It is not essential for a compost heap to have a lid. However, a lid does help to regulate both the temperature and the moisture levels. You could easily use a piece of old carpet (preferably Hessian backed rather than foam backed) or a thick piece of plastic tarpaulin weighed down with stones.
Similarly, you may ask, can you compost outside in the winter?
Compost all winter. Even though your compost might freeze solid and decomposition come to a complete stop, there is no need to stop composting. In fact, the freeze-thaw cycles will help to break down the materials that you are adding, so they will decompose even faster when the spring arrives.
How do you take care of a compost bin in the winter?
During the colder months, the microbes in the compost must be kept active. For winter composting, move compost bins to a sunnier part of the yard if possible. And use layers of leaves, straw, cardboard or sawdust to help insulate and keep warmth in the pile.
