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 rain water

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.

    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 .

    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

    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!”
