you can put more IN your HOTBIN

The HotBin is a new hot composting bin that lets you put all food & garden waste in.

Unfortunately 70% of household food waste is kept out of home composting bins because it generates odour, rats and flies. Which means it has to be collected and reprocessed (e.g. via a new AD plant) or sent to landfill. The HotBin allows you to start recycling more food waste in your own back yard.

Keen recyclers will be impressed by its environmental benefits; Gardeners will love the speed of the rich compost produced

The HotBin works as it is now easier for you to control a constant temperate of 60 C to deliver efficient hot aerobic composting. Along with effective aeration this makes the HotBin 32 times faster than traditional composting bins.

Garden Organic was satisfied that because the HotBin’s temperature could be maintained it could provide significant sanitisation of waste that includes cooked food. They highlighted that during the trials there was little odour associated with the HotBin, virtually no flies and no problems with rodents, all major concerns when adding food waste to a compost bin.

You can compost all food waste including meat and fish, not just fruit and vegetable peelings and the clever design ensures there are no odours, flies or rats to worry about.

Bob – A keen gardener:
Uses his HotBin in the green house, he benefits from rich compost and a winter heater.

Nicola – A recycling fanatic:
Enjoys the benefits and rewards of effortlessly recycling all her food waste.

Caroline – A large garden:
Looks forward to great compost in just three months reducing the use of fertilizer and peat.

David – A software plc:
Uses the HotBin as part of an ongoing commitment to implement beneficial environmental policies.

Dave – A primary school: Teaches the next generation that recycling food waste is easy and fun. As the HotBin works faster the children see their rewards within a term.

Add in left over meals, plate scrapings, meat, fish, small bones and things like mouldy bread and cakes together with grass cuttings, autumn leaves and garden pruning to create rich compost all year round.

With a HotBin there are few rules, little fuss and less smell.

You can recycle a whole lot more than just vegetable peeling allowing you to immediately reverse overnight how much waste you send to landfill.

You can simply put more in your HotBin.

    I don’t know if this is the correct place to post this but here goes anyway.
    I bought two hotbins in January and I am absolutely delighted with them. After a slow start due to the temperature the bin really took off and is chomping it’s way through all our household waste, shredded paper and recently grass cuttings. There is no odour until the lid is opened and even then it is not a bad smell. I did have a slight problem with the external thermometer but this was quickly rectified by a very efficient company. The difference between the internal and external thermometer is about 20 degrees which is something I can live with quite happily. it’s too early to see the standard of compost but since it is working so well I’ve no doubt it will also be very good.
    Worth every penny paid and by far the best compost bin I’ve ever used.
