Black Gold: HOTBIN CompostHow Much Compost will I Get from My HOTBIN?

By adding a typical amount of food and garden waste, the HOTBIN should produce approximately round 2-3 Kg of mature compost for every 10Kg of waste added.

  • The average user will empty the HOTBIN 4 times a year. Each time about 60-70 litres are taken out.
  • When you pull out the compost it will fluff up and become bulkier. It can easily expand and fill a wheel barrow (about 150 litres).
  • Please be aware that these figures can vary enormously - as a rule of thumb the more waste that goes in, the more compost comes out and the higher the internal temperature, the more speedily compost is produced.
