Master Composter Megan Brosterman... HOTBIN makes it easy to compost and it is fast!

“The best part for me is that everything goes in! No more separating any food waste… and it is fast!”

Master Composter Megan Brosterman bought her HOTBIN in March and have harvested from it about four times by now. Initially, Megan looked into buying HOTBIN after reading that it could keep steady temperatures above 104°F, which she has read is capable of killing jumping worms and their eggs.  Jumping worms are an invasive species prevalent where she lives in Central New York, and she has seen several cold composting piles infested with them.

“The best part for me is that everything goes in! Meat, bones, eggs, dairy (if we weren’t a dairy-free #dairyallergy house). No more separating any food waste! I’ll make chicken stock and bone broth and just dump all the scraps in together, and bones are disintegrated as well! I even throw in funky garden waste because the temps get high enough to destroy pathogens. HOTBIN works, and it works fast!!”

“Even with all the grossness of decomposing waste inside, it doesn’t stink as long as you keep up with adding leaves and wood chips each time you add food scraps. I haven’t had any rodent issues (yet), even though the whole thing is made of heavy duty Expanded Polypropylene.

If you are in a suburban or town setting and want to compost but are worried about smells and attracting pests, I really recommend the HOTBIN. HOTBIN is such a great product for home composters.  I am a firm believer in how getting more people to compost can lessen our climate footprint by reducing greenhouse gases emitted from organic waste in landfills - according to the EPA, landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the United States!  The easier we can make it for people to compost, the better… and HOTBIN does just that!”
