The Small Ridan Food Waste Composter is incredibly easy to use and requires minimal effort. Furthermore, the unit doesn’t require any electricity and so is completely environmentally friendly! The Small Ridan food waste composter is intended for smaller operations producing under 80 litres (40kg) of food waste per week.
We find that food waste is normally loaded on a daily basis (on average about 10 litres of food waste every day). Once loaded, the handle is turned and immature compost is disposed from the outlet. This can be stored in the maturation box until it is ready for use on the garden.
Step 1. Load food waste and shredded cardboard at one end
Step 2. Turn the Handle
Step 3. Collect the nutritious immature compost at the other end
Step 4. Transfer immature compost into a maturation box until ready to use.
Recycle ALL of your Food Waste!
All food waste can be composted, raw or cooked, meat, fish and dairy. The mixture within the Ridan gets very hot with a natural average temperature of between 50 and 70 °C. These high temperatures accelerate the composting process by using fast acting thermophilic bacteria, whilst also killing pathogens and seeds.
The Small Ridan food waste composter can be situated outside with no extra services or power required , resulting in zero operating costs.
