Which is best for me, HOTBIN 100L or 200L?
The HOTBIN 100L is a slimline unit for 1-2 person households with smaller gardens and so less waste. It can produce around 260 litres (130kg) of compost per year.
The HOTBIN 200L is designed for a 3-5 person household with a small to medium garden. It can produce around 520 litres (260kg) of compost per year.
What is the plinth option for?
The plinth raises the HOTBIN off the ground so that you can collect leachate to use as fertilizer.
We recommend all customers take the bundle option as it represents better value than buying it alone later.
What is the leachate collection system?
Leachate is a fertiliser that is naturally created as part of the HOTBIN composting process.
HOTBIN incorporates a sloping internal base, funnelling the liquid towards the drainage cap like water draining from a shower tray.
This liquid can be drained via the cap as required and diluted before use around the garden.
Tell be about the new lid design
The new lid seal design includes a raised step around the edge of the seal that when closed inter-locks like a tongue and groove join.
This much-improved lid seal helps to keep the lid firmly closed, prevents any water ingress during heavy rainfall and locks in heat even more effectively.
A Revolution In Home Composting
Kick-start your composting by cranking up the heat to 60°c (that’s 140 degrees Fahrenheit). The HOTBIN works by insulating your kitchen and garden waste to maintain the optimum temperature to allow the contents to breakdown quickly and naturally.
It’s fast, efficient, easy to get started and keeps on working right through winter when most other methods go to sleep.

What's in the box?
Your HOTBIN Composter will be delivered to you packaged in a recyclable cardboard box with no assembly required. You'll also receive a Bulking Agent, a woodchip product, that along with the packaging puts you off to a great start to filling your bin.
A Kick-starter bottle is also included. This is the HOTBIN's own hot water bottle to keep it hot during the winter months. It's made of high quality plastic material, is long lasting and 100% recyclable.
The CAM Strap maintains an airtight seal, keeping heat generated by the bacterial process in the unit and unwanted visitors out. It's UV treated for long life.
The raking stick is dual purpose and can be used to mix fresh waste, shredded paper and bulking agent together as well as to help harvest the compost from behind the hatch panel.
