Hotbox

 Scotty’s HotBox

All the gardening books tell you that the best composting happens in large heaps of a metre cubed size at the minimum.

In 2006 Dr Compost created Scotty’s HotBox;  the first commercially made bin at this size with a snugly fitting lid and a base  to keep out unwanted rodents and suitable for composting food waste. Originally made in Yorkshire by Steve Ross-Smith of the Worm Research Centre, it is now made in Devon from mostly recycled plastic.

Scotty’s HotBox becomes an ideal maturation bin coupled with a tumbling or turning composter or a stand alone composter for smaller situations. For more information and how to purchase, contact Nicky at nicky@proper-job.org

“We are completely filling one HotBox each term. This term we have started using the compost that has matured for the last 9 months, we are thrilled with the quality of the compost we have made!”
