Third microbes ( an accelerator ). Fourth is container you can use any container either of earthen pot or anything as per your ease.

Put dried leaves in the lower of container above it spread green kitchen waste add some accelerator i.e; microbes on top of it. Again put another layer of dried leaves and close the lid of container. That’s one day waste. On second day repeat the same process. Once in 4-5 days mix it well so that it can absorb oxygen. Oxygen is essential for its breakdown.
