New for Fall of 2005, the Rolypig composter is the easy and fun way to make compost. Compact and completely enclosed, the Rolypig Composter aerates effortlessly and continuously for faster decomposition. New waste is "fed" via the Rolypig's snout. When the first compartment is full (about 3 weeks) you roll Rolypig onto its next two flat sides, aerating all the contents automatically as the contents move into the next section. Simple, back-saving, and no complicated mechanisms. 12-15 weeks later, your plant-friendly compost appears in (you guessed it) your Rolypig's rear bucket. Because material flows from one internal compartment to the next and finally into the rear discharge drawer, Rolypig's appetite for waste is continuous as he is never full.
What makes the Rolypig Composter Special ::
patent-pending Continuous Flow System
The first of it's kind, these patented designed continuous flow chambers mean no more compost batches. You can feed> your Rolypig every day. Four compartments, designed with paddle deflectors, enable this screw design to work with gravity to process your waste cleanly and efficiently. Diagram + more info on how the composter works.
Effortless cycles - no more batches
After about 3 weeks of feeding Rolypig , the first compartment will be full, and you roll Rolypig to move the waste from the first compartment to the second compartment. After 12-15 weeks the original waste will be in the last compartment, and you can remove the waste from the (you guessed it) rear bucket. The compost will most likely be ready, but if not, just feed it to Rolypig and run through the Continuous Flow System again.
Children of all ages love feeding the RolyPig
Children of all ages will be enthusiastic about taking kitchen waste to feed Rolypig. Rolypig is (no way around this) cute and because of its size conjures up an image of a loveable farm yard animal. Children treat Rolypig like a new pet. While it is not a toy, children genuinely enjoy feeding Rolypig because it is a clean, easy, and fun chore.
Turn your kitchen waste into garden gold
Never again will you dump organic kitchen waste into the garbage to be expensively transported to the landfill site where it would be expensively monitored for years to come. Just think how much fossil fuel energy is wasted in this way to bury a potentially useful garden fertilizer.
completely enclosed - Pest free
Unwanted pests can’t get at kitchen waste in the Rolypig Compster. The design of Rolypig’s fiberglass head and rear bucket do not allow for pests to get at the vegetable waste. The head which stands 30" high needs to be lifted in order to feed Rolypig. While a child can do this easily, it’s much too heavy for pests to move. The fiberglass rear bucket is designed to fit snuggly so pests cannot enter Rolypig from either end. Many cities now ban or are considering banning open compost piles because of the pest control (e.g. rats, mice, raccoons and insects). Rolypig allows residents of these area to continue composting.
