Measuring up for a HOTBIN
If you are looking at buying a HOTBIN composter and you want to see if it will squeeze in a corner this post is for you!
The HOTBIN is about the size of a standard 250 litre (black/blue/brown/green) wheelie bin.
- Outer: 550 width x 625 depth x 1145 height mm (wheelie bin size)
- Base: 450 x 450 mm (unit tapers to base)
If you are measuring it to check it will fit into a gap, you need to give yourself room to lift the lid right up to a position where it will stay up whilst emptying out your caddy, this is in fact one of it’s USPs according to some customers!
It needs 750 mm depth to allow the lid to fully open – see photo
With the lid open, it needs 1600 mm height.
