Compost Awareness Week Competition


Hot bin kit

To celebrate Compost Awareness Week, and promote home composting, we are running a competition to win a HOTBIN for Suffolk residents.

These super-efficient composting systems will take both cooked and uncooked food waste and turn it into nutrient rich compost for your garden in a matter of months!

The extra insulation means that the HOTBIN reaches the high temperatures necessary to kill off the bacteria in cooked food and also speeds up the composting process, which would take around a year in a conventional composting system.


You could to win a 100L OR 200L bin (depending on your circumstances/ size of household as you need to have enough organic matter to feed it), with an RRP of £138.99 and £194.99 respectively.

The easy to use 100 and 200 litre capacity HOTBINs are compact and occupy roughly the same space as a wheelie-bin. Steaming away at up to 60°c the HOTBIN speeds up your food and garden waste recycling producing compost in just 30-90 days.
