    The Best Method For Composting 

    We have used these bins ourselves some having been in service for over 10 years and are still working well today with almost no maintenance required at all.

    Set up on your bin on gravel or a surface that will allow air flow underneath cover the top of your compost with a loose fitting cover that will allow water to pass through.

    We use a piece of old hessian carpet to hold in the heat but will pass rainwater

    Try to allow air flow underneath via large stones or gravel, this will also allow drainage.

    Try to keep the garden waste /cuttings etc cut up as small as possible to speed up composting. Mix the composting materials and introduce some vegetable kitchen waste and a small amount of garden soil, or a composting aid with each layer of composting materials that you add to your bin.

    Try to rotate the layers (if possible). If you have bought the extension bin/s remove some of the separating panels and drag the materials across to the empty bin (using a rake) occasionally to aerate the compost. Adding a little garden soil each time you do this will rapidly increase the rate of decomposition.

    PLEASE NOTE: The compost bin add-on is 3 sides only, allowing you to add to your original compost bin. The pictures are to show the combinations possible with the product.

      I have recently purchased the Tekplas compost bin with two add-on sections to replace my rotted and collapsed timber compost bins and I must say that already I am mighty impressed. The slats just slot in and lift up again with so much ease I wondered why I struggled with the timber version that warped and swelled for so long. They look really smart as well. I was surprised that they were only slightly more expensive than the cheapest timber ones on the market but I’m certain that they will last much longer so were very much worth the small extra cost.
      I went for the patio version that screw together at the bottom as I had paving slabs in place already; just make sure you have someone there to push against when drilling the pilot holes otherwise you can accidently loosen the structure and miss all the pieces you are trying to grip together.
      The top clamping sections are brilliant at holding everything in place and can be temporarily used on the first or second section up when erecting/fixing together (easier to jump out when that pesky wasp shows up!) and moved up to the top when you are finished.
      Great to know they use a proportion of recycled plastic. Would definitely recommend to others.

      “This Tekplas compost bin is fantastic! What can I say – it arrived within days of ordering, and with no drills or screws needed, was assembled in under an hour, and that was for a three bin run! The tongue and groove interlock design means it all just slots together. Another great feature are the steel rods that slot down the posts and into the ground to stabilise and anchor it.
      We love it!”
