Aerobin Composting

Composting can often take more time than you’d like, but the Aerobin offers a composter that heats up your organic waste to help quickly break it down. This gives you useable compost much faster than a regular compost bin. By cutting landfill waste as well as time, you can be as green as your garden with your new natural fertiliser.

What I love about this composter, is the ease of use...

Other Aerobin benefits include:

- Potential to add meat, bones, fish, egg boxes paper and card in moderation
- Little need to turn your compost
- All-year-round composting due to weatherproof insulation
- No odours or wasted heat
- Robust construction for a lifetime of use

Composting is the best and most efficient way to create garden fertiliser from domestic organic waste, and temperatures can reach 40-60° with an Aerobin to speed up the process. However, in the right conditions, an Aerobin hotbin composter can provide even faster results by reaching highs of 70°. You’ll see nutrient rich compost in as little as 12 weeks, possibly even quicker.

This composter comes in two boxes, one box for the main component and the second which holds the central aeration lung (flue). This lung assists the quick breakdown of food and garden waste.

More Information:

  • The Aerobin was developed & designed to enable the recycling (composting) and reuse of most organic materials that are generated at the household. This provides a practical alternative to these materials being collected, transported and dumped at landfill sites or incinerated.
  • In the natural process of aerobic (or hot) composting, the work is performed by healthy decomposer microorganisms.
  • These organisms are a living thing that require food (carbon & nitrogen), air and water. When they have the correct balance, compost is produced very quickly in this Aerobin.
  • The Aerobin is vermin resistant.
  • To get the composting process underway quickly, it is best to add a layer (50mm or 2”) of compost in the base of the Aerobin. This can be either healthy compost from another composter or compost purchased from a garden centre, just ensure that it's not sterilised.
  • Waste should be premixed before it is loaded into the Aerobin. This will avoid concentrations of any individual material.
  • Compost should start to form on the base of the Aerobin (remove the Access Doors) from 8-12 weeks of starting.
  • This compost bin has a base and a Leachate Tank to collect rich liquid nutrients in.
  • Rich Leachate should start collecting in the Leachate Tank of the Aerobin within 4-6 weeks. Don't forget to dilute Leachate before use.
  • The product is fantastic for garden waste and works best when at least half-filled. Do ensure that woody material is shredded or mulched before adding.Glossy ink printed magazines or cardboard are not suitable for the Aerobin as the inks are mostly likely not biodegradable and can be toxic.
  • Has a moisture recirculation system, which means you can just drop your food/garden waste in and let the Aerobin get to work!
  • Manufactured from 100% virgin polymer.
