There are alot of different ways you can build a compost bin.
I just used a big rubbermade tub with a lid. Drilled hole in the sides for air and in the bottom for drainage. Then I put all my kitchen scraps (vegi and frutis) any yeard waste like leaves and grass clippings, left over potting soil... and mix it up every so often!
There are some tabs on the side that talk about nitrogen to carbon ratio. To be perfectly honest with you we don't worry about that at all. We just throw grass clippings, scraps, drier lint, etc into the bin, when it gets to the top we water it and put the lid on and don't really look at it for awhile. Once in awhile we turn it, but not as often as they recommend. Next season we use the compost in our bins.
As for bins, they have bins in another tab on the link posted above.
Personally we have the biostack bins we bought through our waste management composting program: Bins Available for Purchase
Kind of pricy but easy to turn. We bought one a year for 3 years and we have found we are good with 3 bins.
