City Compost Bin

Composting is an important, vital part to creating a sustainable city but few urbanites engage in the activity because of stigmas. The idea of having a heap of organic trash slowly decomposing away inside a hot box doesn’t seem very sanitary but to change that perception, the C/N concept aesthetically improves the appearance and ease of use of city compositing bins.

The bins don’t require the public to significantly modify their behavior. You still walk up to a trash bin and dump organic matter. A city attendant then rotates the bins depending on the level of decomposition into finally, a rich nutrient soil far superior to the current chemically fertilized dirt found in most cities.
