Most people add food waste on a daily basis, which in a commercial setting can be up to about 60 litres of food waste every day. The size of this composter makes it the ideal school food composting machine.
All food waste can be composted, raw or cooked, meat, fish and dairy. The mixture within the Ridan gets very hot naturally staying at between 50 and 70 degrees centigrade, this heat kills pathogens and seeds, it also accelerates the composting process by using fast acting thermophilic bacteria.
On-site aerobic composting locks carbon back into the compost where it enriches the soil, creating ideal growing conditions for more food, completing the cycle in a natural way. EasyGear Technology is Ridan’s answer to making composting as easy and accessible to all. The EasyGear makes using the composter light work.
Your Ridan can be sited outside, with no external services or power required , resulting in zero operating costs.
The large Ridan is popular with schools and colleges across the UK. Not only does having a food waste composter at the school help green credentials, it is also a great way to teach children about the environment and importance of recycling. It also shows students first hand just how quick, easy, and rewarding it is to turn their food waste into compost. Schools already benefiting from installing a Ridan include Colyton Grammar School, Tavistock Primary School and Upminster Junior School.
“I am amazed at how well the Ridan works, how easy it is to use and how quickly it composts, as a result we now only have one bin collected every week instead of two and we have plenty of rich compost for the garden”
Stowford Primary School, Ivybridge, Devon
