Hello,

New to the forum. I hope this is the right place.

I found an old box in the garage. I have no idea where it came from. It says Yard Waste Eliminator and Made in Canada on the box. It has several flat plastic panels that look like they snap together. So far all the usual Google Fu has not been very informative.

I think it is some sort of yard composter or something of its ilk.

Anyone have any idea what this is? Anyone need one?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried a variety of keywords and haven't found anything that sounds like what you describe. Tell us what kind of plastic, any kind of information on the manufacturer, etc.

Can you post a photo? It looks like this forum doesn't have a way to upload, so your best bet is to take a digital photo and host it at Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, wherever you prefer, and link (use the IMG button up above) and let us take a look at it.

I Googled and found it listed on the third entry. When you search Google use " on either end to search exact data.

What you described and that image are similar to a thing I had in my yard for a while, but when I moved out I had to leave it behind. Mine was 5 or 6-sided and made of slats of cypress. The idea is that the food and grass and such you drop in have some ventilation but it's small enough that you can either use a spade fork and reach inside to turn it, or you can simply lift the whole thing off of the pile of compost that has collected and set it nearby, then either spread out and use the compost or shovel it back into the bin, thereby giving it a good turning and letting it cook some more.

Since you have it I'd go ahead and use it. Don't forget to water your compost every so often, that'll help it work a lot faster.
