Creating your own compost is even easier with this innovative aerobic composter. The Hotbin Mini Composter boasts an insulated, sealed-unit design that reaches temperatures of 40-60C, allowing the incredibly quick compost production with just 30 – 90 days!

With a 100 litre capacity, it is ideal for households of 1-2 people producing a minimum of 2.5kg of waste per week.

The well-sealed lid comes complete with a built in bio-filter that prevents unpleasant smells escaping and keeps the unit hot to ensure quick composting. The heat also kills off fly larvae, weed seed and pathogens during the process.

Because it uses hot compost technology, you can add a wide range of waste such as grass clippings, household waste (including vegetable peelings, cooked meat and even small bones!), as well as leaves, plant clippings etc.

A large hatch panel allows for easy compost removal, and there’s even a clever leachate system with a built-in tap, so you can drain off your own compost tea to make nutrient rich fertiliser for your plants.

Hotbin Composters are made from 100% recyclable expanded polypropylene and come with a reassuring 3 year guarantee.

Durable, sleek and hardwearing, situate the Plinth on a flat level surface and ease the HOTBIN into the contoured raised edges to provide a snug, firmly nested fit.

Hotbin Mini Plinth (Does Not Include Composter) (KF0097)
1 x 100 Litre Hotbin Mini Composter (KB9790)

HOTBIN Mini features a much-requested leachate collection system. Leachate is naturally created as part of the HOTBIN composting process and can be used as a liquid fertiliser. Like the Mk.2 HOTBIN, HOTBIN Mini has a sloped internal base which funnels the liquid towards the drainage cap like water draining from a shower tray. This liquid can be drained via the cap as required. A new tongue and groove join helps improve the lid seal keeping the lid firmly closed preventing water ingress during heavy rainfall and locks in the heat helping the HOTBIN to work even more efficiently.
