Compost Turning Drum

Highfields Composting, a non-profit organization which promotes composting as a waste-management solution, hired a Hudak Design engineer to design and build a human-powered compost turning drum for a high school in northern Vermont. The goal was to build a system that could turn a maximum of 2 cubic yards of compost with only a human power input while staying within a small budget keeping the design simple for easy replication.
