|Each sub-assembly is made by joined 2 panels together overlapping them at their corners. They are joined top and bottom using galvanised angle brackets on the inside and galvanised flat joining plates on the outside.|
|Two saddle clamps are screwed into position as shown. They help to handle the sub-assemblies when they are being separated so the compost heap can be aerated.|
|When the two halves are brought together, they are secured using small cabin hooks as shown above.|
|This picture shows the bin just finishing a batch of hot compost which usually takes 18 days to make. |
The bin was first put into service in October 2016 and has produced a batch of compost every month since then (about 3000 litres each year).
