Our Price:  £5.00(Inc. 20% VAT)

The kick-start bottle is an empty high grade plastic bottle which can be used to help boost the hot composting bacteria’s rate of heat generation within the HOTBIN.

The bottle is most affective when the bin’s internal temperature is less than 15°C so when starting the HOTBIN for the first time or having returned from holiday and the internal temperature has dropped. If the HOTBIN’s internal temperature is above 15°C, you are best to raise the temperature by the types, quantities and frequency of waste being added rather than using the kick-start bottle.

For instructions please refer to the directions on the bottle's side.

DO NOT use other bottles than the one provided as this could cause injury. When handling the bottle with boiling water use extreme care and cover your hands.

Don’t bin it, HOTBIN IT!

HOTBIN composting makes sustainable living that little bit easier, it’s rapid, hassle-free, helps reduce waste and promotes a healthier, greener planet!

  • Wondering, I want to compost, but it’s too complex and labour intensive
