Precaution to take when using dustbin as compost bin

I just noticed one troubling thing - the lip (Note: LIP, not lid) of the upturned dustbin being used as a compost bin collects stagnant water. This mean trouble, that is, aedes mosquito breeding. One will have to drill holes at the lip to prevent water collecting. Will have to do that this afternoon if it doesn't rain. To make clear what I am refering to, look the PHOTOS. The lip which used to be facing downward is now at the bottom facing upward.

(Update: done. Drilled many holes. No water collecting now.)

Thank you for that.
It is very useful for those in Nigeria where mosquitoes breed in millions.
