- Place the compost container in a sunny location to speed up the process
- Heap up the ingredients in the container to build up natural heat in the compost mixture
- Common household organic matter such as plant matter, newspaper residue, wood, leaves, kitchen waste and grass clippings are ideal constituents for a compost filling
