I have two of these now and they swallow up lots of kitchen and garden waste. Good price and quick delivery.
Exactly as described, prompt delivery & very sturdy. Would recommend this product
Very pleased with this product. Price was very reasonable and arrived the next day! My first lot of compost is almost ready now, after getting it in November (it’s in a shaded spot unfortunately)
Nice bin, perfect for use,quick delivery.
Arrived as promised, very good tracking system to see its progress. The compost bin is exactly as it seemed in the photo and exactly what I wanted.
Great product and really quick delivery.
It's a nice bin for the compost. Fast delivery!
Next day delivery. No hassle, v easy to buy from.product was as described
I didn't read it carefully about 'push fit' lid, was screwing it round and round and had to get the neighbour to help me get it off. My hands are weak so luckily I ordered a little trowl too, I may be able to use that to prise it open going forward. Otherwise if you have weak hands the ones that unscrew are easier.

The bin itself looks like it will hold a lot once you put it in there. Delivery is very fast, that is impressive.
Great value and fantastic speedy service!
