So what's the scene with these compost bins?

Am I to expect some kind of beer fest mentality when I go to the Alliant Center to pick up my compost bin tomorrow? Nuvo hippies with first-itis blocking me out in their Subarus and silly Patagonia hats?

Seriously, how long do those things last?

Sorry for the late post (relative to when the event was), but we have had a bin for 8 years and it seems to be holding up well.

However, this is the first year that we are actually letting the bin do its job (in that prior years saw us mixing the kitchen scraps - after a few months of composting - with yard compost).

We ended up using our leaves as mulch rather than letting it go to fully-decomposed compost (so we have nothing to mix it with).
