    Great compost bin, will last for many years unlike wooden compost bins,  it can be jet washed should the exterior become dirt throughout the harsher winter months.

    Its manufactured from uPVC and is easily assembled, also enables you to rotate or separate your compostable waste.

    Should you have any bespoke composters requirements or areas you wish to use our Tekplas Composting products in please contact us

    Easy Use System Simply lift the top caps on one side and slide the top panel up the groove of the posts and out, you can take out 4 of the 5 panels from one side and dig out or rotate your compost very easily. It is the same for all four sides.

    We also have an upgrade product for the Compost Bin which is the Tekplas Compost Bin Lid

    Dimensions

    Length and Width: 92cm

    Height: 77.5cm

    The bin is made from hollow PVC extrusions which insulate the compost, retaining the heat and aid in generating good quality compost. When you need to empty or transfer the compost the individual panels can be lifted to enable digging out.

    The Kit Consists Of The Following

    20 x T&G Panels

    4 x Posts

    4 x Caps

    4 x Top Panel Brace Bars

    4 x 700mm Metal Ground Spikes = If choosing to fit on grass or soil

    16 x Screws and Screwcaps =  If you choose the patio option

    Our ground spikes are knocked into the ground and then our post slides over the top and the ground spike can’t be seen but gives the compost bin great structural strength

     

    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 bins 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:

      • We as a business are trying to help the environement so our compost bins are made from a percentage of recycled PVC, so the panels can vary slightly in colour and have the odd blemish.

    1. Pat Jones (verified owner)

      Extremely pleased with the compost bin and add-on that we bought recently . Very easy to assemble – even for a mere female ! Have just ordered another add-on , as the remaining old wooden bin looked so tatty in comparison . I’m sure these bins will prove to be much longer-lasting with the wetter weather here in Cumbria than wooden ones , and think , being plastic , they will probably warm up quicker and make compost faster .
      Very impressed with the helpful customer service and reliable delivery date . Will certainly be recommending this firm to all my gardening friends .

      I already have a compost bin from Tekplas, but never got round to adding a review, but i’m so pleased with how well it works. I recently brought a compost bin add-on. Fitted it to my exsisting compost bin with in ten minutes. Brilliant!!

    4. Daniel James

      Really pleased with our compost bin, we also brought a compost bin add-on at the same time. i can’t believe how easy it is to add the compost bin add-on. its a great modular system

    5. Mr J Herbert

      Firstly thanks Tekplas, our compost bin arrived within 4 working days. Really easy to put together. Holds the heat very well as the plastic panel is double skinned. Nice and sturdy!! Looking forward to using it, and hoping to purchase an Compost Bin Add-On later in the year

    11. Ian Jones

      Excellent Product, hoping to buy and Compost Bin Add-On next month

    12. Mr Oliver

      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!”
