This low maintenance composter recycles all food scraps (except meat and dairy) as well as garden waste such as lawn clippings, leaves, twigs and even newspaper.
So, what makes the Aerobin different to your average composter?
The Aerobin has:
A central aeration lung which means that there is no need to aerate by hand.
Insulated side walls to support efficient composting year round.
A leachate tank at the bottom of the system, allowing you to collect and use leachate in your garden.
A moisture recirculation system.
Thermal insulation around the bin stabilizes temperature all year round to create the perfect environment for hot composting, a process which reduces the time needed to break down organic matter and also kills dangerous pathogens, weeds and seeds that could could potentially be a risk to your garden. Matched with the central aeration lung and moisture recirculation system, the Aerobin makes composting easy and efficient!
The Aerobin needs to be installed on a level, solid foundation (not soil or lawn). Concrete or paved paths, concrete pads, bricks or heavy timber are all ideal.
What is the difference between the Aerobin 200 and Aerobin 400?
The Aerobin 200 has a 200L capacity. The Aerobin 400 is larger, with a 400L capacity.
How do I get started with the Aerobin?
Place a 10cm layer of browns at the bottom of the Aerobin. A mixture of dried leaves and twigs works best, but you can also use mulches such as Sugar Cane Mulch.
Above the browns, place a 10cm layer of moist, active compost.
Add food and garden scraps in a 50:50 ratio.
