Lifetime 65 gal. Compost Tumbler
Going green? Recycle your vegetable scraps into a nutritious fertilizer for your vegetable and flower gardens with the Lifetime 65 gal. Composter. While this composter holds less than our 80 gallon composter, the cooking process takes less time because it is designed with a much larger aeration tube. This increases airflow and breaks the compost down into a fine fertilizer. It is constructed with heavy-duty black panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the organic material. The lightweight 65 gallon tumbler turns on its axis for balanced rotation. The non-cylindrical design of the tumbler allows for more effective mixing of contents when rotated. Extra-large removable lid allows easy access for filling and dumping. With your compost ingredients enclosed inside the composter tub, you will not be subjected to an unsightly, smelly, fly attracting, open-air compost heap in your garden. And no more turning it all with a pitchfork. Save your back, save your money, with the convenient Lifetime 65 gal. composter. This product does not contain BPA.

Lifetime 65 gal. Compost Tumbler Reviews
Lifetime 65 Gallon compost Tumbler
This is a great quality perfect size tumbler for a medium to large backyard in the city of Los Angeles. It is easy to put the material in and turn. It is sturdy and good looking. My only negative comment is the assembly. It is very difficult to assemble without someone who is handy and familiar with reading complicated instructions. It should have more drilled holes in the plastic and metal rather than having to drill yourself. Once assembled (two people, 3+hours) it is great.
