The Hungry Bin is a clean, simple and easy way to dispose of organic waste using compost worms. The Hungry Bin is a large worm compost bin designed to create an ideal living environment for compost worms. Worms convert organic waste into worm castings, a high-quality fertilizer that is easy to collect from the the Hungry Bin.
How the Hungry Bin Works?
Organic waste is placed in the top of the bin. As compost worms eat the waste in the bin, they convert the waste into worm castings. The castings are pushed down through the bin's tapered design and compressed by the weight of fresh castings above them. The compressed castings are retained in the lower part of the bin, where they can be simply and easily removed when needed for use as plant food or soil conditioner. Under normal operation, the castings will need to be removed from the bin once every two to six months.

* Due to manufacturer requirements given the size of this item, returns are not available for this item (defects and issues will be taken care of though!).
* For customers in cold weather environments, it is recommended that the Hungry Bin be located indoors during the winter months in a mild, protected location such as an enclosed garage, basement or insulated shed. In summer months maximize the Hungry Bin's productivity by ideally choosing a sheltered, shady spot – the ideal temperature range is between 60-80 Fahrenheit. Avoid extreme temperatures, particularly full sun in summer, as temperatures over 95 Fahrenheit may kill compost worms. You can wheel your Hungry Bin between different locations depending on the weather conditions or season. If the bin is outdoors in winter, make sure it is not subjected to freezing conditions for extended periods of time.
* Compost worms are not included in your order of the Hungry Bin but can be added (with free shipping!) in our collection of compost worms. It's recommended to start with at least 1 pound of compost worms.
