You don’t have to use a bin; an open heap will work but may be a bit slower and may need a larger amount of waste to work effectively.
You could also contain the waste using reclaimed wood e.g. old pallets to make a large box type structure – leaving the base and top open, cover with old carpet/polythene.
Many people however opt for a plastic bin and these are widely available. Designs are similar; some have a hatch to get at the finished compost; some you have to lift the bin off the compost to get at it.
Tumbler type bins sit on a frame and can be agitated to aerate the mixture. They work much quicker than a regular bin, but are much more expensive.
