Trash can style Flow Through Worm Bin

I set up a new trash can style flow through worm bin so that I could have a prettier and more efficient way to create worm castings. I cut a hole in the bottom of the back of the trash can and drilled some holes a few inches above it. I used zip ties to weave through the holes for the contents to sit on top of.

I then used a piece of cardboard to line the bottom for the bedding to sit on top of. I added some of the contents from the other box along with some of the worms and some leftovers for them to feed on. I then topped with some newspaper and there you have it!!

So now whenever one of the kids has leftovers they can just toss them in there as if they were throwing away trash normally. 

Since I added the 1,000 worms I have TONS more castings in my bins and they are going through everything very fast! I am happy about that because I will be able to harvest some soon and add to my containers.

I will be interested in seeing how much food waste I can process with this system.

I am not sure how well I will be able to keep up with them now!!
