Green Cone Food Waste Digester
 $185.00/ $170.00 for members

Looking to increase your waste diversion even more? The Green Cone digester accepts all food scraps, including items that typically cannot go into backyard composters such as:  dairy, cooked food, bread, bones and meat.

The digester must be dug 2 feet into well draining soil in a sunny area of the garden.  Simply add all your food scraps and it will ‘digest’ them – turning your waste into a nutrient rich leachate that is absorbed by the surrounding soil.

It can also be used to compost pet waste (no kitty litter or dog waste bags, however).  It must be placed at least 10 feet away from a food garden or fruit producing tree if being used to dispose of pet waste.

No skill or effort required, simply fill and forget:

  • Easy assembly – requires only a screwdriver and a shovel
  • Requires very little maintenance after installation
  • Handles up to 11lbs of food scraps per week
  • Pest resistant
  • Perfect for group dwellings, schools and households with limited green space
