The HOTBIN compost bin is like no other compost bin on the market, it will quickly chomp through all your food and garden (and compost toilet) ‘waste’ turning it into rich, organic compost your garden will love.
The innovative design and insulating nature of the material keeps the HOTBIN HOT, creating a natural environment which quickly digests the contents, making HOT composting easy.
HOTBIN reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill by composting more types of food waste. Be less selective by composting 100% of all food and garden waste without the traditional composting problems of odour, flies, turning and tumbling.

Using the HOTBIN with Compost Toilets
The HOTBIN is an ideal companion to compost toilets, creating an excellent compost in record time! However, as with creating compost from any raw material, getting the right ‘blend’ is important. You should not experience any odours from your HOTBIN when composting human ‘poo’ etc when done in accordance with the HOTBIN instructions.
If you use biodegradable bags in your compost toilet, we don’t suggest these are placed in the HOTBIN. If you place the full bag directly in the bin, it will take a while for the outer bag to break down before the inner contents are available for composting. This can mean the inner contents can start to compost anaerobically which is not what you want. Even if you empty the contents and drop the bag in, the bag itself presents quite a large mass to break down – in reality, it’s probably best to dispose of the bag in your regular rubbish, where it will degrade.
All sorts of materials can be composted in your HOTBIN along with the contents of the compost toilet – try ripped up cardboard (pizza boxes are ideal), grass clippings (mixed with other things so they don’t compact and sludge), scrunched up newspaper, vegetable peelings, garden waste and so on.
