The Incredible Hungry Bin Worm Composter


In a nutshell....

The Incredible Hungry Bin Worm Composter is a clean, simple and easy way to process organic waste. In our opinion this is the most efficient compost bin you can buy, it is very easy to use and produces fantastic high nutrient compost. What more do you want? Fully stocked now for 2020

Quickcrop are now the sole agents for Hungry Bins for Ireland and the UK.

Remember when ordering that the worms are not included so make sure to order worms as well. Obviously we have them so just put the word Worm in the search bar and they will come up for you.

Designed and made in New Zealand, hungry bin is a fast and convenient way to compost your food scraps. In our opinion it is simply the best home composting solution available. In a single day the friendly compost worms will eat their own weight in scraps and process approx 2 kilos of kitchen and garden waste.

If you are into gardening the most exciting part is what you get out the other end. Worm compost or vermicompost is the simply the best compost available. It has been thoroughly broken down by the worms into a highly nutritious, balanced plant feed that can be used anywhere in the garden.

The Hungry bin is a unique design. Traditional wormeries use trays of bedding material which need to be regularly changed and result in a cumbersome and messy process. The Hungry Bin is different. It uses a unique conical design which compresses the compost and encourages the worms to feed at the surface. This means the compost 'brick' harvested from the bottom of the hungry bin is largely free of worms. If there are one or two stragglers they can be placed back in the top of the bin to join their friends.

The conical design also works as a funnel strain moisture from the bin which not only keeps the worms healthy (excessive moisture is a problem with other designs) but produces a highly nutritious liquid plant feed or 'compost tea'. This liquid feed is caught in the drip tray placed below the hungry bin where it can be poured off into a watering can and used around the garden.

Dimensions: 950mm High x 600mm Wide x 650mm Deep (When Assembled)

Weight: Empty 12kg, Operational 95kg

The Hungry Bin Can process up to 2kg of waste per day

I am a teacher so we got one of these for our school. It gives me endless things to cover with the kids and they love it. It also produces a lot more compost and gets through a lot more waste than i expected

Very impressed witht the build quality of this unit, very good quality parts. The worms come separately and took over a week to arrive but all is working now. Really enjoying using the product, it has become an addictive hobbby! Good customer service from QC over missing worms polite and helpful staff.

I am from New Zealand and I have used one of these for 6 years or so. Small flies are there I think it is too wet. Add shredded news paper and that hopefully will solve the problem. I get more pee and worm poo than I can manage and I have almost 2 acres of plants. I have been told that worms reproduce faster as there is more food. Great product.
December 13th, 2018
It arrived promptly and was easy to put together. It is early days yet but so far it does not smell which is good but there are lots of flies when I open the lid to add fruit and veg waste so am not sure if I am doing things right. Have only seen one worm climb up the side of the bin. Should I be 'stirring' the contents or something?
May 25th, 2018
I have only assembled,bled it thus far. This was easily done. It is a neat looking product and instructions are clear. Soon I need to get the worms and get using it.

Very pleased with the product and the prompt delivery. Well packaged, easy to set up and use

Asked By Michelle
on September 07th, 2019
Hi Niall & Andrew 🙂 What should I use as a bedding for my Hungry Bin? Also would ye recommend keeping this bin outside in our Irish climate? Thank you
Answered by Niall
on September 09th, 2019
Hi Michelle Straw is great however peat or general compost also works really well. Leaving it outside in our climate is perfectly fine however i tend to take mine in during the cold spells during the winter when the temperatures get down to below minus 2/3 at night. If you leave it out when it is to cold the worms will self regulate and reduce their population accordingly which reduces the winter effectiveness of the hungry bin Regards Niall Quickcrop

Asked By Yvonne Lynch
on September 03rd, 2018
Can you please clarify what can be used in this bin? My understanding is raw and cooked veg, grass, clippings, cardboard. . No meat,fish, bones. Is chicken manure allowed?
Answered by Niall
on September 03rd, 2018
Hi Yvonne I wouldn't put cardboard in as this is not like a standard composter. The worms have to digest and compost the material and they won't do this with cardboard. No meat or bones, chicken etc. Manure is fine but mainly grass clippings and waste from the kitchen. All your peels etc and some of the scraps from the table without the meat Regards Niall Quickcrop

Asked By John Russell
on July 29th, 2018
What is the procedure for getting compost out of the bin.
Answered by Niall
on July 30th, 2018
Hi John Once the unit has been working for about 3 months the compost internally starts to compact. Once this has happened there is a little trap door tray at the base and this will give you a block of the best every compost about every 3/4 weeks Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Eliz Moore
on July 20th, 2018
How is it affected by the West of Ireland if it is left outside?
Answered by Andrew
on July 20th, 2018
Hi Eliz. The Hungry bin is designed to be left outside. It is best placed in an area with some shade and should not be exposed to prolonged below freezing temperatures but due to relatively mild Winters this is unlikely to be an issue. I hope this helps.
Asked By Alistair
on July 20th, 2018
Hi can you confirm can I compost all food scraps cooked/uncooked, meat etc except bone. And do we have to replace the worms regularly like end of winter & would they survive during the winter?
Answered by Andrew
on July 20th, 2018
Hi Alistair. The Hungry Bin is for use with raw food and should not be used to compost meat or fish. If you are looking for a unit to handle cooked food inc. meat and fish have a look at the Joraform or Hotbin both of which are also available on our website.
Asked By C Tully
on July 19th, 2018
what is the minimum amount of waste you’d need to have a day for this to work?
Answered by Niall
on July 19th, 2018
You don't have to add to it every day. Once it is filled to about half full before you put the worms in and then a small bucket of waste from the garden or kitchen once a week. 5 litres would be plenty Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By David Montomery
on May 18th, 2018
Hi Niall, apart from the look and how it works, how does this differ from the Pig composter? Can this take all the same things as the Pig such as food both cooked and raw, cardboard etc?Thank you
Answered by Niall
on May 18th, 2018
Hi David It can indeed except for bones. That said this unit won't break down the waste material as quickly as the Pig will due to the fact that the worms can't get through the waste as quickly as the heat in the Pig will break it down Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Eimear
on April 10th, 2018
Hi Niall, I'm just wondering does the hungry bin attract rodents?
Answered by Niall
on April 11th, 2018
Hi Eimear Not at all. That is one of the great things about it. As it is off the ground and sealed nothing can get in and they are not even attracted to it as there is no smell created. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Todd Sullivan

Asked By Jo Wing
on April 06th, 2018
How many worms approx. will I need to collect for a healthy worm bin?
Answered by Niall
on April 06th, 2018
Hi Jo The worms that go in to wormeries are different to those in the soil in your garden. You will need compost worms or tiger worms. We will have these for sale on the website over the next few days. They are not expensive and can be got from various sources. Regards Niall Quickcrop
