Shredded up 20% shredded newspaper,10% compost, 70% reg. dirt, mix up and put in 1 or two boxes of worms for base stock.Depending on how big your container is. Add a little water every now and then to keep it moist.Remember to reach to the bottom and mix it up every few days to keep the dirt from packing to tight . Also add some dirt,sand newspaper to keep the level up.
If you are talking about a large container in which to start a worm farm or to store your worm bait then personally a nice box-like structure with walls lined with plastic and water tight. I've seen old mini-fridges converted into worm beds, but that takes up alot of space and digging around when you're low on worms. My buddy has an open top box he made with a removable lid. It's lined with a couple layers of heavy duty plastic.
