compost bin
COMPOST BIN

Made by gathering plant material, such as leaves, grass clippings, and vegetable peels, into a pile or bin and letting it decompose as a result of the action of aerobic bacteria, fungi, and other organisms.

A compost bin cycles energy, by decomposing biomass and forming fertilizer that is full of Nitrogen.

The decay of biomass releases energy in the form of heat.
