Composting organic waste — from food scraps to yard clippings — is one way you can divert trash from a landfill. Not only that, but it harnesses valuable nutrients to produce fertilizer that will boost the health of the soil on your lawn or in your garden beds. Convinced it's time to start composting? Or are you looking for a new bin for your scraps? The Vivosun Outdoor Tumbling Composter from Amazon Canada could be your next smart buy.

It's a large and durable composter that fully rotates and features twin chambers — and you can score it for 35 per cent off right now. Interested? Scroll below for further details.

Turn kitchen scraps to quality fertilizer with this “easy to use” and “durable” rotating compost bin.

$105 at Amazon

This large outdoor composter is 27.6 inches wide, 36.6 inches high and 25.2 inches deep, weighing about 22 pounds. It holds a whopping 43 gallons of leftover food, kitchen waste and garden clippings, turning them into high-quality fertilizer for your garden in 10 to 12 weeks.

It's built to be as efficient as possible and has two sliding doors that open to twin chambers — fresh waste can be deposited through one door while the other produces rich compost.

The tumbling design allows you to spin the contraption to blend your compost rather than mix it by hand. Plus, it comes with a set of easy-to-clean waterproof gloves.

It also has multiple vents to ensure that air circulates and won't increase internal pressure, which can cause an explosion. And the deep fins break up clumps so that the waste properly ferments.

You can keep it outside in the rain and direct sun without risking corrosion or compromising the quality of your fertilizer.

It's also been noted that there's also "no smell."

Though it’s quite large, some customers note that “serious gardeners” or people with a large family or yard “may want a bigger model.” They also say wider sliding doors would be an asset so a shovel can fit through the openings.

Some reviewers warn that you should “give plenty of time for assembly.” It may take anywhere from 30 minutes if you’re handy to a full afternoon if you’re not.


The Vivosun Outdoor Tumbling Composter is a smart investment if you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to dispose of kitchen and garden waste while improving the health of your garden. Thanks to an intelligent design, this model is easy to use, fun to tumble and can withstand harsh weather.

However, if assembly is not your forte, you may want to ask a handy friend or family member for help.
