Product overview

Designed and made in New Zealand, Hungry Bins are a fast and convenient way to compost your food scraps. The innovative design is super efficient and can turn up to 2kg of organic waste per day into fantastic fertiliser. A Kiwi garden isn’t complete without one!

Hungry Bins are designed to create an ideal living environment for compost worms. They can eat up to their body weight in food a day, and will convert all your organic waste into nutrient-rich, high quality castings and liquid fertiliser. Once it’s all set up you simply put the scraps in the top, and collect the good stuff at the bottom. It’s that easy.

Hungry Bins are specifically designed to reduce any nasty smells or vermin, so there’s no need to leave your compost at the bottom of the garden. Simply keep it next to your front door with the rest of your bins. The units are simple to put together. Just add some compost and some composting worms and you’re away.

Do something that’s good for the environment and for your garden. Order a Hungry Bin today.

q: Do Worms come with Hungry Bin ? If not how much are they? and are they readily available ?
a: No this bin doesn't come with worms. We don't sell them, but your local garden store might be a good place to begin, or a quick google for some local specialists.

I purchased my Hungry Bin about 5 weeks ago. Everything is going well so far, the worms are breeding and its generally in a health disposition. One thing that is confusing though is that there is no liquid juice coming from the bin as yet. It is certainly moist enough as the condensation is present. Maybe it just takes some time to soak through the base of compost I have used as bedding?

Bought this bin because we were producing too much organic waste for the square black model. The worms are just ramping up the numbers and we hope its capacity is good for us in the future. Much easier to use than the black model

Great design, easily put together. Worms still establishing themselves, but a great addition to traditional compost bins.

Our bin is still "bedding" in with the worms getting used to their new home, but unlike other bins where you're having to move the worms around and change layers etc, this bun is 'feed at the top and remove from the bottom' ......good design

I am really happy with this purchase. A little expensive but easy to put together and no messy layers to keep changing. So simple to add scraps to and a good seal on the lid.i have found it much nicer to look at and much sturdier than the old plastic layer worm farm we had. It is heavy to move so make sure you are happy with the placement before setting it up.
