I have tried out two dozen types of compost bins at my Compost Learning Lab at NC State University and these two bins are my favorites: The Earth Machine and FreeGarden Earth. Both of them sell for around $100 retail but you can get them for a 50%+ discount from some cities or counties in North Carolina.

Orange County sells Earth Machine compost bins for $50 year-round.

The City of Greensboro is selling Earth Machines for $50 during September 2021.

The Town of Cary sells FreeGarden Earth compost bins for $45 during April.

Wake County sells Earth Machines for $50 during May.

These discounts are a great opportunity for those who want to do backyard composting, and I have these resources to help you do it successfully. My guide to backyard compostingPrintable version. My video about different composting bins.
