Hi I have been using one hotbin for nearly 2 years in North Herefordshire and added a second bin this Spring. I have two teenage daughters who are fussy eaters so plenty of food waste - two buckets a week. i mix with cross cut shredded paper from the office (endless supply!) and brown stuff from the garden shredder - I leave it to decay in the garden for months before using.

I do put pernicious weeds in the hot bin and I use grass cuttings to speed up sometimes but I would need another four hotbins to compost all of my garden waste.

I just wanted to stop our food waste travelling 50 miles to landfill and this was my last experiment having tried and given up with wormeries and bokashi!

Not an expert - but it works for me!
