HOTBIN Composting launches new HOTBIN Mk.2 compost bin.

The HOTBIN Mk.2 incorporates a number of customer requested design features. There is a new leachate collection system allowing for the collection of liquid fertiliser from a built-in tap at the bottom of the unit. An improved seal around the lid locks in even more heat and prevents any water ingress during heavy rainfall. Finally the protruding hinge on the original bin has been designed into the body of the unit reducing the overall footprint and streamlining the design.

The HOTBIN Mk.2 has been designed and is manufactured in the UK.

Retail price of £200
