Composting is one of the best ways to reduce your contribution to the landfill, but it can be a lot of work. Also, as we’ve learned this week, cat waste needs to be handled carefully to avoid the possible spread of certain parasites. The Naturemill pet-friendly composer addresses both these issues. It makes composting very easy and is designed specifically to handle pet waste.
This special version of the Naturemill composter can take all kinds of pet waste, cat litter and even cage bedding. You can also throw in kitchen scraps. It is rated for heavy use, including outdoor use all year round.
You simply add waste — up to 120 lbs per month — to the upper chamber where “hot composting” conditions destroy odors, pathogens and seed germination. The compost is automatically transferred to the lower cure tray where it continues to compost, allowing you to add more items to the upper chamber. Read more on their How It Works page.
They recommend using pet waste compost on trees and shrubs only, not on fruits and vegetables for human consumption, but it will provide you with an endless supply of nitrogen-rich compost. The Naturemill composter is energy efficient (only 5 kwh/month, or about $.50/month), it’s made from recycled and recyclable materials, and one unit can divert over two tons of waste from landfills over its life. That’s huge!
