Recycled Clever Compost Bins are a versatile solution for animal waste and kitchen waste to nourish your garden without the hard work of composting. It’s a step up from five units, so suits a larger family and possibly a few large animals. You know you can even put cow, horse, pig, chicken or other animal manure in here also.  The worms will love you if you are only filling them with worm friendly waste. But most people use them for their dogs as well as their kitchen waste.

Ten Recycled Compots is great for the budget conscious, environmentally conscious and those people who have a relatively large amount of waste that needs composting. You might have a large family or a lot of fruit trees where you can plant a black Compot by several trees for all the fruit waste from the tree. Just rake it straight into the pot, lock on lid and walk away. However, you can’t walk on the recycled Compots as they are not as strong as the green virgin Compots. So for my money, I would get the green ones.  But it is your choice.

I cannot recommend putting them in a veggie patch either, even though people do. There is no way of knowing if chemicals will leach out of the plastic unless ever batch was tested.  And this is too expensive so is not likely to ever happen. If you were making a garden seat out of recycled plastic it would not matter. But something that is being used to nourish your veggies is another matter.  Around ornamental plants, it should not be an issue. I personally would go for the green serious gardener pack in this instance as the green ones will not leach chemicals into the soil. And you can stand on them and they won’t break. I know for myself I often forget to avoid them in the garden.

But it is up to the individual. Only you can know how careful you are in your garden and what your needs are.

They are perfect for raised garden beds or above ground composting because you are not likely to stand on them.

How Many Recycled Clever Compost Bins do I need?

As a general rule of thumb, I suggest one Compot per person and one for the garden. Though vegetarians often need two per person and two for the garden because they seem to have more fresh waste. Add one or two more if you have pets depending on whether you have a small or large animal and a small or large amount of animal waste. With the animal waste, it is preferable that is has decomposed properly before you spread it around your garden.

Having 10 Compots allows you this luxury to let one sit for 4 to 6 weeks to be sure all the animal waste has decomposed. To read greater details about how to use a Compot click here Green Compot x 1

The current manufacturer I use produces the recycled Compots with off cuts from the factory floor so at this stage I know there in not an issue with the recycled plastic leaching chemicals into the soil. You must not stand on the Black Recycled Compots as the tabs can break so they are better used in the Above Ground Method or any raised garden bed where you are not likely to walk on the pots.

In the past the Recycled Compots have been made from a mixture of plastic (called Kerbside Plastic) which could potentially leach chemicals into the soil all depending on what the plastic was used for before it was recycled. These older products are not currently produced but may be used if there is not enough off cuts from the factory floor.  The manufacturing process used to produce this product can only use recycled kerbside plastic or factory offcuts.  Other recycled plastic materials used in many recycled products are not suitable for the process required to produce the Compot.

The black recycled Compots are not as strong as the green virgin plastic Compots.  As  mentioned you can break the tabs on the lid if you stand on them and they may not last as long as the virgin green ones which can be recycled at a time when they finally fall apart.

I do not guarantee the black recycled Compots because they could potentially leach chemicals into the soil depending on where the recycled plastic comes from, as it is impossible to know what the plastic container held before it became recycled plastic. There may be nothing in them but unless you test every batch of plastic you can’t know for sure. This testing is not likely to happen due to the cost involved as they would have to test every batch.

I have customers who have them in their veggie garden but I cannot recommend it and nor can I guarantee these pots as they are weaker than the green virgin Compots.  But the choice is yours in the end.   The green ones can be recycled when you are finished with them.   The Black ones get weaker with each recycle phase until they are not useable at all.

To post one Compot cost the same as three Compots (unless you live in Brisbane where the rates are generally less than most other areas) so consider the postage costs when you order to get the best value out of your post.

After 3 Compots it costs roughly the same to post up to 14 Compots depending on where you live.   You can test different bundles for postage costs by entering your suburb details and requesting a quote.   Just don’t follow through with the order.   Try another bundle to compare postage costs, and then make your choice on the bundle you want.   Or call us if you can’t work this out.

The updated website and shopping cart should automatically calculate any variations of products you add to your order and offer you the three cheapest options (one with signature required) so you can choose which option you prefer, be it courier or Australia Post.  However, if this does not appear to happen then please call us (0467 006 529 / (07) 3358 3716) for a correct quote or continue to payment options.  We will refund you any postage charges over and above what the real cost is when we calculate and book your order.   So don’t be put off by the post.

If for any reason you feel the postage to your area is excessive (and sometimes it is too remote areas) please email us  so we can work something out for you.  The updated website will now give you Australia Post and courier costs, but this still may be excessive.   So, contact us to see how we can help.
