What else can I do to get great compost?

Make sure to turn the pile of compost about once a week. Getting the parts on the outside in toward the middle is a good idea. Basically exposing newer compost and moving it all around will get the job done. You can use a shovel or a rake, etc. The goal is to get all the beneficial organisms a chance to help work on and break down the rest of the material. As the pile heats up, and continues to get sufficient moisture, and gets turned regulary you will end up with some great compost! It will take about two months or so. What a great way to recycle and make use of what normally would be just trash.
