The Biolan Eco 220 litre hot composting bin is suitable for domestic loading. This compost bin is heavily insulated to enable composting right though the winter, even in Finland.

Domestic compost bin – General tips
- If you use biodegradable bags, empty the compost and put a bag of compost separately.
- Always cover the waste with some compost bedding.About 1/3 to 1/2 the amount of the waste. If the waste is wet use more bedding.
- Small frequent amounts are better than a large amount once a week. Try to add waste to the compost bin several times a week. This is important especially in the cold season.
- Monitor the composter’s temperature and air supply for best results. When the compost temperature is much higher than the outside temperature, open the inlet air valve knob to the right (100 position) to allow more air in. If compost is cooling close off the air intake until temperature is stabilised.

Domestic Compost Bin – Site Selection
Place the Biolan 220 Eco compost bin in a place where waste can be easily added throughout the year. Ensure that the position is not going to be in standing water during periods of high rainfall. Place the compost bin on a flat piece of ground or tilted slightly backwards by lifting the front edge a bit.
Put about 20 liters of Biolan compost bedding on the floor of the compost bin. Turn the inlet air valve knob to the left. When starting to compost use the recommended amount of compost bedding each time you add new material. Over time you will be able to use less.
