Default Composting in 5 Gallon bucket

Hi all,

While I dream of living on a big piece of land, I'm currently in an apartment in Los Angeles and don't have any room to make a big compost heap. So, I use two 5 gallon buckets which I've perforated with many holes to allow for air circulation.

I fill the buckets with about 1/3rd fresh "green" vegetable scraps from the kitchen, and the rest with "brown" fallen leaves. I roll the buckets and flip them every week or so.

Do you know any tricks to make them compost faster? Any other pointers or recommendations?

Thank you.
