The Composting Bin is a Structure exclusive to Don't Starve Together and introduced in Reap What You Sow. It is used to produce Compost.

The Composting Bin accepts items that fall under two categories:

Category Items
Wet All Foods, Rot.png Spoiled Fish.png Rotten Egg.png Ham Bat.png Garland.png Seawreath.png Fish Food.png
Dry Cut Grass.png Twigs.png Pine Cone.png Twiggy Tree Cone.png Birchnut.png Cut Reeds.png Log.png Boards.png Living Log.png Driftwood Piece.png Oar.png Driftwood Oar.png

After a period of time, the Compost Bin consumes two items and produces Compost. If possible, it consumes one item from each category, otherwise it consumes two from the same category.

The composting time depends on the current load of the compost bin: The more items, the quicker the composting is done. Composting time also depends on the ratio of wet and dry items. It is fastest when there is 50% of each category and slowest when there are only items of one category.
