Add a tray
In “standard” rhythm it takes about 1 month and a half to fill a tray (waste + paper / cardboard).
We must wait until the tray is well filled before adding another above.
The litter must remain in contact with the bottom of the new tray to facilitate the migration of decomposer organisms.
The new tray will nestle gradually as the litter underneath lose volume.
This litter can be simply made of cardboard.
It’s even better to take some of the litter from the previous bin to speed up the seeding of the new bin.
