Insulated Hot Compost Bins - Mark 2 Version
Hotbin composters work much faster at breaking down your food and garden waste by heating them up to 60°c. This extra heat enables you to compost 32 times faster than regular cold composters - and have a rich, useable compost in somewhere between 30 to 90 days. It works so fast and thoroughly that turning or mixing the compost is not required.
These bins have a large 200 Litre capacity, but still take up the same space as a normal wheelie bin. They are well insulated and contain foul odours, eliminating pests. They work all year round and will compost all of your food and garden waste, even in the winter months when traditional composters stop working.
The Hotbin now includes a leachate collection system. Leachate is the liquid run off from the natural composting process and can itself be used as a liquid fertiliser. In the old hotbins, this liquid would just pool on the floor of the compost bin. In this new model, the leachate is funnelled towards the drainage cap where it can be drained via the tap and used as needed.
The lid has been redesigned to now include a raised step around the top edge of the bin. This locks together like a tongue and groove joint when the lid is closed. This extra security keeps the lid closed firmly and prevents any water from seeping in during heavy rainfall. The protruding hinge has been removed from the lid and instead built into the hotbin, so that it is now perfectly square. The aeration mesh can also now be slotted into the bin's base.
Comes with all necessary composting accessories. These units are moulded from hard styrofoam and keep rodents out.
