Clarrington, the bin you gave the link for; I can't see how you would get the compost out without dis-assembling it. The link from Clueless seemed a better design for emptying.
As regards position, it's best for the compost to be protected somewaht from icy winter winds. My Daleks are protected pretty much on 3 sides, but get part sun.
