Lifetime 80-gallon Tumbler Composter

This item may currently be in stock at your local Costco Warehouse for immediate purchase at a cash and carry price. Why spend money on expensive fertilizers when you can create your own composting and reduce landfill waste as well? Improve the soil in your vegetable garden and flowerbeds with a Lifetime Composter. With a composter you can easily reduce, reuse, and recycle kitchen and garden waste into a rich organic soil conditioner. Compost helps retain the moisture in your soil and adds rich nutrients for healthy plants.   The Lifetime Composter is designed with black, double-walled panels to absorb and retain the heat that is necessary to decompose organic material as well as an internal bar to mix and break down the material into a rich, black organic fertilizer for your garden. The lightweight 80 gallon tumbler easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation—saving you the time and effort of turning your compost heap with a pitchfork!  You’ll also appreciate the extra large removable lid for easy filling and dumping.

Be prepared to assemble this item

Pros: large capacity, heavy duty construction, easy to tumble compost, clear instructions
Cons: difficult to assemble
Model Number: 317282
"The composter seems to be of high quality, and I would recommend it. However, purchasers should be aware that it takes three hours and two people to assemble. It requires a power drill and several other tools, and you need to be strong. I could not have done this by myself."

Impossible to use.

"Nice looking composter. However, once I filled it about halfway, it was impossible to turn. A composter that large needs to have a crank to move it. I ended up having to return it to Costco."
