Can i use the HOTBIN in the garage or shed?

The simple answer is No.

The reason is: composting releases large volumes of water - up to 4 litres per typical 5 litre of waste added every 3-4 days. About 50% of this is remove as water vapour - so 1-2 kettles full a week. This would likely cause issues with damp. Additionally you may experience a small quantity of leachate leaving the HOTBIN via the mesh plate at the front which can pool on the floor in front of the unit.
