  • HotBin hot , no leachate

    Hi
    My hotbin is at 40 degrees , has been hotter . But no leachate at the moment . I did get plenty of leachate when starting my hotbin . But it has dried up . Any ideas please

    You shouldn't be getting a lot of leachate if your mix is close to perfect, but you should get some. Your mix might be too dry. Try adding in more green material.

      I drew off half a pint of leachate today. I’m not bragging because I know that is too much. My hotbin has been at 60 degrees for a few weeks now, in fact this morning it hit 65 degrees. I think I may need to add more shredded cardboard and shredded paper.

        Have look at Youtube videos by Beanie Composter - one about month ago which is precisely about this issue. I cant work it out but wonder if hot weather (live in Southeast) is one cause as I had lots in Spring but have had none for last 2 months but bin constantly in green zone temperature.
