Edition: July 2023
A Hot Bin can take cooked food waste including bones, peelings, and pet waste and turn it into rich compost in 30 to 90 days by heating up the contents.
The result is a nutrient-rich compost for your garden. If you wanted to use a traditional cold composter, keeping a container in the kitchen to collect your fruit and veg peelings could reduce your waste by up to 10%.
Last summer 15 families and community groups trialled hot bins, you can read all about their experience by visiting the Council's website.
