HOTBIN is Made in the UK

The HOTBIN Mega is like no other compost bin on the market. The innovative design is super-insulated - it retains heat and enables bacteria to digest quickly at 60C, making HOT composting easier and faster. it will quickly chomp through all your food and garden waste turning it into rich, organic compost that your green space will love.

HOTBIN reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill by composting more types of food waste. Be less selective by composting 100% of all food and garden waste without the traditional composting problems of odour, flies, turning and tumbling.

The science of the HOTBIN Mega bin is exactly the same as the tried and tested HOTBIN that has thousands of satisfied customers and a stack load of reviews and case studies proving that HOTBIN really is a HOT composting bin that works.

What Do I Need to Add?

  • To maintain the HOTBIN Mega's temperature you need a minimum quantity of approx. 20Kgs of waste per week to maintain hot composting. (20 Kgs or 40 litres, roughly one mower box full or ½ a wheelbarrow full).
  • When adding only mixed garden waste, the bin is unlikely to need any additional wood chips to help with aeration (ie as a bulking agent).  
  • You can add our Compost Humification Agent to make your version of biochar super compost (SF60, SF40). Using the agent is not a requirement for the HOTBIN to work effectively. It is an opportunity to make your own biochar supper compsot which when added to your soil will upgrade it to a Terra Preta formula.
