HOTBIN Pricing Announcement


HOTBIN Composting is delighted to announce a RRP price reduction, driven by our commitment to make sustainable living more attainable during these challenging times of rising living costs.

From the 2nd January 2024 we are able to pass on these cost savings to our customers with the recommended retail price (RRP) of the HOTBIN, HOTBIN Mini and HOTBIN Plinths all subject to a 15% RRP reduction.

Over the past couple of years, like many businesses, we have navigated a difficult business environment and have had to reluctantly implement price increases to maintain the viability of our UK based business. We are delighted that we have been able to absorb some costs and that we are able to pass back some of the savings that we have managed to secure through some easing in energy inflation.

This price drop is our way of passing on the cost benefits that we have secured, directly to our customers to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable living.

We hope our community of sustainably minded consumers find these savings useful.
