Where can I locate the HOTBIN?
Wednesday, 5 February 2014 | HOTBIN Composting
On any firm level surface - in sun/shade, on soil, grass, paving or gravel.
We recommend you locate it close to the kitchen door/house so it is easy to pop out and empty your food waste in. The HOTBIN charcoal filter removes any bad odours - so it is ok by your door.
You may notice a small amount of brown liquid draining from around the air intake if the leachate reservoir overflows. This is water plus dissolved humus substances (liquid fertiliser!). It will dry as a brown stain - but it is easy to wash off using a brush and water - it is not permanent.
