  1. On-site bin system
  2. On-­site forced air system (similar to a bin system but with included equipment (blowers and air channels) that are designed to aerate the compost piles, ultimately speeding up the process of decomposition
  3. Hauling off-­site to chicken feeding
  4. Hauling off-­site to a local composter
