Possibly the most effective and efficient kitchen waste composters in the world, the Swedish made JK 125 and JK 270 have been used for years in Scandanavia to reduce kitchen and yard waste. The JK - series proven technology helps households to reduce both the burden of waste in landfills and trash collection charges, while creating a valuable fertalizer for the garden. The JK125/270 creates fertalizer hygenically - in a rodent free casing, with a minimum of fuss and mess, and without use of chemicals or worms.

The JK 270 is the perfect size composter for use in larger households, bed and breakfasts, and small restaurants.

In schools and kindergardens the JK 270 can be used as an educational tool!

In addition to waste, which has a high nitrogren content, a source of carbon must be added to provide an energy source for the microorganisms. This is done by adding sawdust or wood pellets when adding the waste. Add wood pellets in the ratio of 10:1 (waste to pellet) by volume. Add sawdust at a ratio of 3:1 (waste to sawdust). The wood pellets or sawdust absorb moisture and keep the mixture relatively dry. Wood shavings are not as successful but conconut fibre or dry, chopped straw can also be used with success.


It takes around 6-8 weeks from starting to fill to production of compost - so once both chambers are in operation you should be able to empty one chamber every 3-4 weeks or so.


Note to Cat and Rabbit Owners: Wood pellets are also available as litter, so this is an excellent enviromentally-friendly way to dispose of your pet's waste!


Please note: Due to the bulky nature of this item, an additional shipping cost will be added to your cart at time of purchase.
