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.

Questions and answers

What is the lowest temperature the worms require to stay alive? And what temp range is ideal?
If the ambient temperature was zero, the soil would actually be warmer, the worms would burrow deeper, so generally you'll be fine especially in NZ. The bin must be kept out of the sun, but other than that, there are no strict temperature requirements.

Do Worms come with Hungry Bin ? If not how much are they? and are they readily available ?
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.

What is not good to put in hungry bin? Cooked products? Citrus? Garlic?
Food to avoid would be meats, bones, fat and anything oily or greasy. Citrus foods like lemons, limes and oranges. Dairy products including butter, sour cream, milk, whole eggs (egg shells are ok) and cheese. Canned sauces, peanut butter and other processed foods.

We have been given a hungry bin from a friend but there is no soil in it. What is the best type of soil to start with.
We recommend compost mix, you can get this from any garden centre.

"Out of the sun" is a big ask in the Kiwi summer if the bin is to be outdoors. Will the worms come to any harm if the bin lid is exposed to the very late afternoon/evening sun?
No this should be fine, it is best to keep it out of prolonged direct sunlight.

My son's worm bin is full of liquid and it looks like all the worms have died. What should he do to get it started again and how should he get the bin working properly and keep the worms alive and thriving?
You need to clear out the liguid and compost/castings at the bottom - check out the user guide on this product page. Hungry Bin also have some great resources on their site -

Hungry Bin Worm Farm

This is awesome for the Gardener in your family. It was easy to assemble and to start off.

Glenys Palmerston North
It just works

I use it in conjunction with regular compost. Add worms from it to the ordinary composters as this machine chomps up food really fast

Disappointed Hungry Bin Owner

I have had my Hungry Bin since the end of Covid lockdowns, when non-essential online orders could be delivered. I'd been using a triple layered wormfarm for over 9years in my large organic vegetable garden on my lifestyle block. I gifted this to a neighbor when I moved south to the Kapiti Coast. I read all the information provided by the manufacturer of Hungry Bin & all online revues, plus noted that there was a picture of a female moving the Hungry Bin. I am a fit retired person and started to set up the bin immediately it was delivered. I was taken aback, after filling the bin as required then standing it upright, that the forward weight lifted me off my feet completely! I could move it pulling it backwards on the concrete path but was unable to move the bin at all on the lawn! I live alone and had to get help to place it in its permanent location out of the sun in a hedge line. I'm afraid this product is not suitable for anyone who is not tall and under 60Kgs. I am extremely disappointed it does not meet my needs.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Hungry Bin Worm Farm

Love this worm farm, it is sturdy, strong and efficient and the wheels are great for moving around. I put off buying one for sometime because of the price but I am happy I decided to purchase, as it will last.

Does the job

We have had our bin for a month now and everything seems to be going as it should. We choose this bin because it is the only compost bin that is on wheels and we are able to move it into the shed on cold days

Michelle Hastings
Love this worm bin!

Such a good system, so easy to use and the worms are very happy! Keeps the soil nice and moist and nasty bugs out, love it.
