Now into the fifth month of the trial. I was given a Hotbin as part of a residents trial organised by Adur District Council. So far so good, actually so far, so very good
I have put almost 170 kg of material into the Hotbin. That is a mixture of shredded paper, kitchen peelings, garden waste, wood chippings and coffee coffee grounds. And I have taken out 45kg of really good quality compost and siphoned off 16 litres of leachate. The compost is currently being used as a mulch in the Home Garden around the perennials that will over winter and roses planted this year
