Clever Recycled Compost Bins x 6 are best suited to a three or four person household who have one or two family pets and just want waste disposal. They are all about waste disposal in your ornamental garden. You can put them in a veggie garden if you so desire though I personally would go for the green virgin Compots.

Some people prefer to use the recycled product because they are environmentally conscious but it actually takes more power and resources to make recycled plastic than it does to make the fresh virgin material. Most people are not aware of this and the cost difference to manufacture between the two products is very small. I personally recommend the green ones because they can be recycled into other products whereas the black ones degrade further with each recycle phase so their strength is not as good and the plastic becomes too soft to use for anything.

How To Install

Like the Green virgin eco-eze compots, you dig a hole and bury them in the ground, level with the top of the soil. Backfill around the pots and fill them with all your waste. Lock on the lid, cover with whatever you use in your garden to retain the moisture in the soil, except dirt or sugar cane mulch. Then let them rest till next time you want to add waste. Spread them around your ornamental garden and just keep topping them up.

How Many Clever Recycled Compost Bins Do I Need

As a general rule of thumb I suggest one Compot per person and one for the garden for all your kitchen waste, but if including your animal waste I would add another one or two depending on how big your dog/dogs are and how much waste they produce.

Having said that – If you produce a bucket of waste ever day you will most likely need more than one.   And I find vegetarians need 2 per person and 2 for the garden simply because they are eating more fresh food and less processed food.

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.

POSTAGE COSTS:

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.

There is no product information on recycled plastic as it comes from many different sources and is generally referred to as “Kerbside Waste”    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.

All care is taken to produce a quality product that will work for you all day every day giving you many years of satisfaction, as well as naturally fertilizing your garden, reducing council waste and therefore reducing greenhouse methane gas emissions.
