The best way to speed up the rate at which your waste composts, is to keep turning it over. To do this, you need either a bin you can turn, or a bin that's large enough for you to get into, with a fork, in order to turn it yourself (like one made from pallets). It's a good idea to have two bins, then you can transfer material from one to the other. Make sure the compost is not to wet and not too dry, either state will prevent it from rotting down well. Good luck, it's really worth keeping going as compost makes a great mulch / soil conditioner, and your plants will grow so much better for it.
