A good sized heap helps in generating heat and cooking the compost, minimum 1m³ – FILLED IN ONE GO. Are these plastic bins large enough to get efficient composting. Perhaps best used as collecting bins for later amalgamation.

Establishment and Development: Building a compost heap / bin.

Collect a good volume of composting material first, a good mixture; Build heap or fill bin ideally in one go; Layer different materials, alternately green and brown. Chop big items such as cabbage leaves; Soil to provide bacteria; Moisten any dry material and firm down Finish with a insulating layer and waterproof lid Heap will heat up – turn the heap when the temperature starts to fall so that the inner core becomes the outer layer; Repeat turning; When the hot phase has finished the material can be used (as long material) or leave to mature (cold phase).
