  • Hello! About to take the plunge?!

    Hello!

    My name is Lynda and I am hopefully going to order a hotbin later today after much research and deliberation but just wanted to settle a few queries first. It's mainly because our options are limited where to put it and I don't want to get it then realise what I had planned isn't going to work! It's destined for our patio alongside the two wheelie bins and my plan is to get one of those slatted wooden enclosures built to house the three together....this is mainly as our table and chairs etc share the same space which isn't massive and it's all very open with no corners to hide anything behind! Do you think this would work ok?

    Also, my husbands only concern is about smelly leeky fluid running out over the patio which he has read about in places...is this a common problem?

    Thanks!

    Hi Lynda,

    Thank you for joining the forum.

    The liquid coming from the bin should only be a minimal amount - roughly an expresso cupfull a week. This can be collected and used as a liquid fertilser. However if it does leak across the patio it will not stain and can easily be washed away.

    Hope this helps.

      I didn't think it produced any liquid! My wormery used to produce a lot of very smelly, but useful brown liquid.

    The leakage shouldn't smell at all Lynda - mine doesn't anyway! Good luck with your new Hotbin!
