Vermicompost is considered ready for collecting when there are almost no pieces of uneaten food or bedding left. A few vermicompost collection methods are used in small-scale systems. These include "dump and hand sort", "divide and dump", "alternate containers" and "let the worms do the sorting". All of them require different amount of labor and time. The vermicomposter should also think whether they want to save as many worms as possible from being left in the collected compost. While collecting vermicompost, it is also advised to pick out as many eggs as possible and return them to the vermicomposting bin. Eggs are easy to spot with their small oval yellow shape.
