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% (1-2 kettles) of this is evaporated as steam/ water vapour a week, this would likely cause issues with damp as there is generally little to no ventilation in a garage or shed. Additionally, there will also be the liquid fertiliser (leachate) which will need to be collected from the HOTBIN and this may drip onto the floor during
