How Much Compost Does HOTBIN Produce?

How Much Compost will I Get from My HOTBIN?

By adding an average amount of food and garden waste, the HOTBIN should produce approximately 2-3kg of mature compost for every 10kg of waste added.

  • The average user will empty the HOTBIN 4 times a year (every 3 months). Each time around 60-70litres will be taken out.
  • When the contents is removed it will fluff up and become bulkier. It can easily expand and fill a wheel barrow (about 150litres).
  • Please be aware that these figures can vary - the more waste that is added, the more compost and the higher the internal temperature, the quicker compost is produced.
