Designed and made in New Zealand, hungry bin is a fast and convenient way to compost your food scraps. In our opinion it is simply the best home composting solution available. In a single day the friendly compost worms will eat their own weight in scraps and process approx 2 kilos of kitchen and garden waste.

If you are into gardening the most exciting part is what you get out the other end. Worm compost or vermicompost is the simply the best compost available. It has been thoroughly broken down by the worms into a highly nutritious, balanced plant feed that can be used anywhere in the garden.

The Hungry bin is a unique design. Traditional wormeries use trays of bedding material which need to be regularly changed and result in a cumbersome and messy process. The Hungry Bin is different. It uses a unique conical design which compresses the compost and encourages the worms to feed at the surface. This means the compost 'brick' harvested from the bottom of the hungry bin is largely free of worms. If there are one or two stragglers they can be placed back in the top of the bin to join their friends.

The conical design also works as a funnel strain moisture from the bin which not only keeps the worms healthy (excessive moisture is a problem with other designs) but produces a highly nutritious liquid plant feed or 'compost tea'. This liquid feed is caught in the drip tray placed below the hungry bin where it can be poured off into a watering can and used around the garden.

Dimensions: 950mm High x 600mm Wide x 650mm Deep (When Assembled)

Weight: Empty 12kg, Operational 95kg

The Hungry Bin Can process up to 2kg of waste per day

It arrived promptly and was easy to put together. It is early days yet but so far it does not smell which is good but there are lots of flies when I open the lid to add fruit and veg waste so am not sure if I am doing things right. Have only seen one worm climb up the side of the bin. Should I be 'stirring' the contents or something?

I have only assembled,bled it thus far. This was easily done. It is a neat looking product and instructions are clear. Soon I need to get the worms and get using it.

In New Zealand this costs 325 dollars which is £170. Why is it so expensive in your shop?
Answered by Niall

Hi Stephen They are manufactured in New Zealand. There is a main agent in Europe for them who takes a cut and then the retailer in Europe has to make a margin. I have queried the price on a number of occasions with the agent in Europe and he doesn't seem to be able to get the price down for me no matter what quantity we buy and we sell a lot of them. Sorry about this. Not being smart but at that price you might be best shipping one up. Niall Quickcrop

Is this for uncooked or cooked food waste?
Answered by Andrew
on July 20th, 2018
Hi Keith. The Hungry bin can handle small amounts of cooked food waste but in general it should be viewed as a raw food composter.

Where does the liquid collect?
Answered by Andrew
on April 06th, 2018
The wormcast collection tray has holes a grid in the base. The leachate drains through the base and is caught in the drip tray placed below the unit. The drip tray has a pouring spout to decant into a watering can etc......

Hi, 2x50L of compost? That seems a lot to start off a wormery
Answered by Andrew
on April 06th, 2018
It does but this is what the manufacturers recommend. The reason is you need sufficient material to fill up the cone shape otherwise the contents will fall out when the bottom door is opened. Also, the more full the bin the greater surface area for the worms to work.
Asked By Michael Redmond
on April 06th, 2018
Hi, what comes with the Bin, is there a starter pack with coir?
Answered by Andrew
on April 06th, 2018
Hi Michael. The bin does not come with a stater pack but we can supply coir or compost. The recommendation is 2 x 50L bags of compost.

Answered by Andrew
