Should I cover my compost when it´s hot?

Covering Your Compost Bin

Covering your compost bin is a good idea if you want to help the ingredients break down faster. The lid will retain some of the heat your pile has generated instead of letting it all simply escape into the air. In addition, in hotter weather, covering a compost pile will help retain much needed moisture, while covering the pile in the winter can help you keep it from becoming too soggy.
