How Much Compost Will HOTBIN Produce?

The volume of compost HOTBIN will produce will vary depending on the waste added and how the HOTBIN operates.

If adding waste on a regular basis the HOTBIN should produce approximately 2-3kg of rich general-purpose compost for every 10kg of waste added.

The average user will empty the HOTBIN 4 times a year (every 3 months based on a 90 day compost). Each time around 60-70 Litres will be taken out – approximately one wheelbarrow full.

The compost removed from the HOTBIN will have a higher moister content than bagged compost purchased from a garden centre and when the compost has been aired it will fluff up and become bulkier.

Please be aware that these figures can vary - the more waste that is added, the more bacterial activity, the higher the internal temperature and the quicker waste is broken down and compost is produced.
