You may have been familiar with the Earth Monster composter we previously offered. Here is why we are changing to the Tumbler:

It is one more step towards eliminating rodent issue. Because the tumbler composters are elevated all compost material is above the ground level and difficult for rodents to invade.

Cost: $90

Description (from Home Depot):

This unique tumbling composter features two chambers fill one side, while the other side cures, making it easy to efficiently convert your kitchen and yard waste into rich soil enhancing compost. Just load it up, close the sliding door and use the convenient built- in hand holds to give it a turn every couple days and see how it produces finished compost in weeks.
