Delivery/Collections

How do I get an item/order collected if it is not suitable for me?

You can cancel your order for any reason before delivery or within 14 days after receiving delivery. The goods must be unused and in their original packaging. You can return for a full refund or if you require us to collect, a collection fee may apply. Contact us or read our delivery page for more details.

How long will it take for my order to be delivered?

We deliver 7 days a week, and your delivery should be with you 14 days after placing your order. However, during peak season, or periods of low stock, delivery can take up to 28 days. Currently, due to current technical difficulties outside our control, certain orders are taking longer to be delivered than expected. Delivery times can also depend on the size of your order. Big, bulky items (such as large composters, water butts, and wheelie bins) will take the longest. Resultingly, our EvenGreener review requests are being sent out automatically 35 days after purchase. For more information, please visit our delivery page.

Why have I received an email regarding my delivery from a company called Mosaic? Should I click on it or is it spam?

Can I swap out a Diverter Kit for a Link Kit in the water butt kit I want to purchase?

No, the water butt kits are packed in advance so we are unable to switch components. However, you can purchase extra elements in our Water Butt Accessories collection.

I want to swap my compost bin from black to green can I do that?

If your order is yet to be dispatched, we can amend this for you. If your order has already been dispatched or you have received it, we can arrange a collection and place a new order for the different item. Please note that collection charges may apply.

Why haven’t I received an order confirmation email?

If you use a smaller email hosting company (a non-Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook or MSN email host) then the order confirmation email we send to you may be rejected. If you have not recieved an order confirmation please:

A) Check your spam folder and reach out to your email host to ask why an order confirmation email that was sent from a legitimate store was rejected for spam.

Bundles

I've got 2 bundles in my basket- why can I not purchase them together?

Any 2 bundles containing the same component will not work in conjunction with each other. You can purchase 2 of the exact same bundle however.

What is a bundle?

A bundle is a set of complimentary products that are sold together. Buying a bundle is usually cheaper than purchasing each product within the bundle seperately, helping you live EvenGreener for less!

Which bundles do not work together?

Bundles containing the same components will not work together. This menas that:

1) The Mini Rainsaver 100 Litre Water Butt Double Kits do not work together (but they can be purchased with single kits, as these are not bundles).

2) The Harcostar Water Butt Kits in 350, 700 and 1050 Litre capacities cannot be purchased in conjunction. Anyone of these kits can, however, be purchased with the single 350 Litre Harcostar Water Butt, or the 114, 227 and 168 Litre Harcostar Water Butt Kits.

3) The Buy One Get One Half Price offer on Blackwall Compost Converters only applies to compost converters of the same colour and size, so you can't mix and match.

4) The HotBin and Plinth 100 & 200 Litre Bundles do not work in conjunction with each other. However both bundles work individually with single HotBin products.

Can the Subpod bundles be purchased in conjunction with each other?

Yes.

If I purchase a black and a green Blackwall Compost Converter, will the BOGHOP discount apply?

No. The BOGHOP discount only applies to Blackwall compost converters of the same capacity and colour (e.g. 2x 330 Blackwall Compost Converters in black).

Our Composters

How do I fit the Compost Converter to the Base Plate?

The Base Plate fits both 220 and 330 litre models. Simply sit the compost bins on top of the Base Plate and start filling your bin!

What can I put in my compost bin?

You need a good mix of waste to ensure the best possible results. This can be both garden and kitchen waste. Some examples are as follows but there are many more:

GARDEN WASTE - Grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, most weeds, twigs, etc.

KITCHEN WASTE – Fruit &
vegetable peelings, cardboard, tea bags & coffee grounds, hair, rabbit/guinea pig straw/waste

HOT COMPOST – Hot composters can break down cooked meats, bones, and citrus fruit peel as well as other kitchen waste.

DO NOT COMPOST – dog or cat faeces, diseased plants, weeds that are in seed.

The door is missing from my compost bin - what should I do?

Please report any issues with your delivery as soon as you realise there is a problem. Contact us.

How is composting beneficial for the environment?

Our Water Butts

How do I fit the tap on my water butt?

Depending on the style of water butt, it may have a threaded fitting or require a nut to secure the tap. The threaded models will arrive with the tap hole protected by a screw-in bung which should be removed with a large flat-headed screwdriver or spanner before installing the tap.

I have not received the tap with my water butt

Your tap should be inside the water butt when it arrives. The Harcostar range should have the tap secured to the underside of the lid. Other models should have the tap inside the water butt with other parts. If you cannot locate your tap, please report this as soon as you discover it is missing. Contact us.

My water butt has been delivered but there is only one package - where is the stand?

The stands are usually delivered inside the water butt. Please check there but if you are unable to locate it, please report this as soon as possible. Contact us.

Do I have to empty my water butt in winter?

It is a good idea to drain your water butt during sustained cold, frosty periods to ensure that no damage is caused by expanding ice inside the barrel.

Can I fit the water butt myself or do I have to hire someone to fit it?

A plumber is not required to install the water butts but some light DIY skills and tools may be required. If you would like us to send fitting information before you purchase, please get in touch and we will email them to you. Contact us.

Can I put the downpipe straight into the water butt rather than using the diverter kit provided?

Yes, each water butt lid has a template to cut out a section where the downpipe can be inserted directly into the water butt.

My water butt is not filling up / My water butt is overflowing.

If newly installed, refer to the fitting instructions as the fittings need to be set-up exactly to the correct height, and on a flat surface. If it has worked previously and then stops filling after a period of time, check the pipes for debris.

How do I keep my water butt clean and odour free?
