Envirocycle Mini ComposterEnvirocycle Mini Composter

Just because you live in an apartment or city condo doesn’t mean that you are left out of the recycling/composting loop. Urban gardeners and anyone wanting to help the environment can join in the fun and enjoy the benefits of composting with the compact Envirocycle Mini Composter.

This Envirocycle Mini Composter is ideally designed for tucking into a small space on the patio or balcony. Just open the lid and throw in your kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, tea leaves and other organic waste and give the composter a turn 3 times a week to keep it mixed and aerated.  In as little as 4-6 weeks it’ll effortlessly turn out enough compost for a small garden’s needs.

The composter is made from recycled plastic and Its tan color will harmonize with its surroundings.

Compact and versatile, the mini-composter produces both organic compost and compost ‘tea’ . It’s a sort of horticultural equivalent of a ‘TeasMade’ !

This ‘tea’ is a very nutritious liquid fertilizer residue that gathers at the bottom of the composter and can be drained off to feed to your houseplants or small garden. The plants will love it – just watch how they respond.


There is none. The Envirocycle is delivered to your door in a recycleable carton. Just remove it from the box, place it in position and you’re good to start composting.

Size and Capacity

The mini composter measures 18.5 x 18 inches with an overall height of 20.5 inches. So with that small footprint it will be easy to find a space to accommodate it.

Despite its small size the drum has a capacity of 17 gallons which is ideal for someone who lives alone or maybe a small family unit which produces very little kitchen waste.

Ease of Use

If you live in a confined area or you’re a gardener with limited space you will thoroughly appreciate how convenient this unit is and just how easy it is to produce compost. The drum rotates smoothly on its rollers with minimum effort.

The Envirocycle’s compact size and light weight (just 10 pounds) make it easy to move around should you need to. That would make this a very acceptable gift for seniors  and students.

Envirocycle drain plugThis mini composter produces two types of compost. One is the rich, loamy substance from the drum and the second is the liquid ‘compost tea’. This drains down into the unique base reservoir unit which can hold .25 gallons.  Simply use the included plug to drain off the fertilizer liquid when required.


The overall effectiveness of this composter is very impressive considering its diminutive size. You won’t be producing the volumes of organic compost as you would with a larger unit but this model is intended for properties with smaller gardens and containers.

Where some larger composters can be weighty to turn, this little wizard almost spins on its rollers rather than rotates.

The 2 in 1 feature of compost and compost ‘tea’ performs quite quickly all year round.

Ventilation openings speed the biological breakdown of the contents which ensures that there will be no unwelcome odors wafting in or around your living space.


You could probably find a composter for less money but this little wizard has been well designed and thought through by a environmentally -aware company that gives a five year guarantee.

The Envirocycle Mini Composter is certainly a good buy and has satisfied many users.
