Toter Introduces a Composter for Organic Waste
New Consumer Composter Designed for Food Scraps and Yard Waste
Toter, a division of Wastequip, has introduced the Toter composter, a unique continuous flow unit designed to make composting easy.
The Toter composter was developed with the user in mind. Unlike tumbler-style units that are difficult to use and require batch loading, where users have to load the unit and wait up to 8 weeks before adding more material, the Toter composter is a continuous feed unit. It loads from the top and material and finished material falls into the holding chamber below by turning the integrated handle.
The composter’s continuous flow design means finished compost falls through the mixing chamber and into the holding chamber below. An internal aeration chimney facilitates the flow of air throughout the material to enhance the composting process.
Consumers who purchase the composter will receive a fully-assembled and ready-to-use outdoor unit that comes with a kitchen countertop container to transport food scraps to the composter. The outdoor unit is wheeled for easily maneuverability, allowing users to position the unit in the sun to enhance the composting process or to move the unit to where finished material is needed.
Like Toter carts, the composter is manufactured with Toter’s Advanced Rotational MoldingTM process to create a durable product that is stronger and more impact-resistant than injection molded products.
The composter also features a wood slat design to blend with outdoor surroundings. A lid latch helps prevent animals from gaining access to the material inside.
“The Toter composter is the result of extensive consumer research to determine the features consumers want most in a composter,” said Joe Futcher, president of Toter. “Consumers asked for a composter that is durable, simple to use and easy to load. We’re confident that our product exceeds those criteria and that users will find our composter to be one of the easiest to use on the market.”
The Toter composter is available online at HomeDepot.com.
