DIY Compost Bins from Recycled Pallets

Put some old pallets to good use by making an organized space for composting your garden waste.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Wood screws
Chicken wire
Black plastic
Shipping pallets
Door hinges

HOW:
1. Screw the pallets together to create a three-sided box with a floor. Line the box with chicken wire, stapling the wire to the wood.
2. Attach the remaining pallet to the top, affixing the hinges so that you can open the top of the bin. The top will prevent leaves from blowing away.
3. Cover the top with black plastic.
4. Place the finished compost bin on bare ground.
