Description

The HotBin Mini 100 Litre Compost Bin hot composts all year round to recycle your food and garden waste even quicker. It works well in the sun or shade but should always be sited on an even surface.

Traditional composting takes 18 months in a cold heap at 10°C, but hot composting takes just 90 days in a HotBin running at 60°C. Explore our entire HotBin range here.

Bacteria decomposing the waste generates heat within the HotBin Mini 100 Litre Compost Bin, which provides effective aeration through the bottom air inlet plate and the air outlet rotating valve. It also removes excess water through the valve as steam and allows you to control the rate of heat loss.

The HotBin can achieve hot composting between 40-60°C, which means it can produce a rich compost faster. As hotter temperatures can be achieved, you can recycle more types of household waste, such as food waste (including cooked left-over food waste, eggshells, mouldy bread, fish, meat with bones, and dog and cat litter) and grass/garden cuttings.

Made from Expanded Polypropylene or EPP, the HotBin is made of just 4% raw material and 96% air making it extremely resourceful and efficient!

Top Tip
Do not use tools to lever off the hatch, or force the hinge lid backwards, and ensure the valve is kept free of dirt and/or snow.

Quick Facts


  • The HotBin should be kept clean at all times.

    Ensure no food waste is left lying around the base, hatch, or surrounding areas.


  • The HotBin should be looked after carefully.

    Take care when removing compost or mixing new waste into the top of the bin.


  • Considering location is important for your HotBin.

    Place your HotBin on a hard, flat surface to discourage the underside from being used as a nesting site.


  • It's important to keep your HotBin closed.

    Always keep the hatch and lid tightly closed. Safely secure cam straps around the hatch; any gaps in door/lid seals result in the bin losing both heat and odours.
