Can a compost bin be started this time of year in Michigan?

Plymouth, United States

I am going to make a simple one with cedar boards. I'm going to make it even if it's too late to start using it. Or can I use it this time of year? I eat a LOT of vegetables and always have lots of peelings, etc. There are also a lot of leaves & stuff that I am getting from dethatching the lawn.

I'm fairly certain you can use - as in add material to - a compost bin any time you can get to it. The materials may not decompose very rapidly at lower temperatures, but that's no reason to skip the accumulation.

I also wanted to compliment the excellent choice of screen name...

Yes you can compost but keeping it in direct sunlight and insulating it with leaves and a tarp will help. Also if you can keep your compost above the ground that will help it break down also.

Hello, I think I can help you. If you're having a lot of garbage from your cooking, of course, you can compost it. But I'm confident that everybody needs some expert help. So this is a piece of advice from my mother because she knows what's best for everyone. When I was renovating my new home, I was left with a lot of garbage. It wasn't pleasant for the eye because it occupied a lot of the garden space. The company I'm talking about offers Junk Bin Rental , and they're the best in this market. It doesn't matter what garbage do you have. They can help with everything, even with asphalt, concrete, or just superficial dirt. You can check their site for more information.
