  • No leachate?

    Hi all,

    After having dealt with an anaerobic HotBin that was producing far too much leachate (I removed the contents, aerated it and re-added with more bulking agent and shredded paper), things seemed to be on the up as the temperature has been climbing and the smell is much better.

    However, since I have done this I have only had leachate once, a week after I did it. Since then several weeks have gone by where there has been no leachate whatsoever.

    When I open the bin, it certainly seems to be humid enough inside and there also seems to be some wetness underneath the HotBin itself, but strange that none of that is filtering to the bottom?

    The weather has been much warmer, could that be a factor?
