The innovative design and super insulating walls keeps the HOTBIN Mega hot composting, all year round.

It creates a natural environment for fast and efficient composting so quickly breaks down your green waste. HOT composting is easier and faster and there is no need to add any composting accelerators or activators, its fuelled purely by your waste and the bacteria that populates it during decay.

HOTBIN reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill by composting more types of waste including weeds when you achieve 40°C plus. Be less selective by composting nearly all veggie and green garden waste all 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 and HOTBIN Mini that have thousands of satisfied customers and a stack load of reviews and case studies proving that HOTBIN really is a HOT composting bin that works.
