Do I Need to Stir, Rake or Shred Compost?
Monday, 23 January 2012 | HOTBIN Composting
It is desirable, but not essential, to occasionally stir or rake new waste into the active upper layer (10-20 cm) of waste in the HOTBIN.
Where the HOTBIN is concerned, we advise chopping waste preferably to less than 2 cm but always less than 4 cm. Do not mash or pulp your waste!
