A compost bin is made from 4 by 4 by 8 foot lattice, held in place with standard fence posts, and tied to the post using plastic ties. This structure lasts about five years before needing replacement, due to damage and rotting of the lattice. I usually make four bins side by side. The ends are left open for turning the compost as required. When I use the chipper shredder the end is closed with another piece of lattice to limiter the blowing area. This is a relatively inexpensive system and is easily made.
