@OGIONIK,
Rubbermaid makes some basic composting stuff. OR, (I assume you dont have ample space), you can go to a Dollar General and buy some 36 Qt platic bins. Drill holes on the sides and bottom and mix in shredded leaves and grasses with layers of stuff like veggie and food scrap garbage. This should be kept moist but not soaking wet. Let the air get in cause thats the real secret, if air is allowed to circulate , you can get really good compost in a matter of weeks. If t goes anaerobic, it can turn into a fetid pile of excrement that exudes Hydrogen Sulfide and Ammonia gases.

@OGIONIK,
I'm prolly not a lot of help here.

I am using a wooden pallet and some lattice, but land is plentiful on the prairie...

I toss the stuff I pull out of the gardens I am making along with my food scraps.

(believe it or not, my little farm community has gone green, we recycle just like a big city)

@Rockhead,
Thats how I compost too, I have several groups of palletes (They act like a bigass oxygen funnel) And I scoop leaves, straw, and manures onto piles. I also use some waste drywall sheets. (I get these from Lowes or Home Depot, they are always throwing the broken ones out).
The drywall adds good tilth and renedesr the compost more gritty like a light soil. (The only problem with drywall is that if you pile huge masses of compost around, say, asparagus beds, It can go anaerobic and release H2S as the drywall is anaerobically digested.
