<<Hello all -
I am ready to build a vermicomposting bin. Since I don't want to buy a
plastic bin or build with wood which will rot one day, I had thought about
some leftover scrap pieces of plastic lumber from an outdoor porch floor -
which would not rot or warp. The recycled plastic in them is very compact &
one of these boards is much heavier than a normal wood board. But does
lumber outgas? Too much for worms?

What is wrong with a pile. Compost does not need resources diverted to make a
container inorder to rot. Compost happens!
