Bokashi Bins (and Urban Composters) use Bokashi Bran to compost your kitchen scraps. Manufactured in the UK, it is available in 1kg and 5kg bags. The Bokashi Bran is sprinkled over the kitchen waste in your Bokashi Bin / Urban Composter and contains the bacteria, fungi and yeasts necessary to start the composting process. On a daily basis, simply add your kitchen waste (including vegetable and fruit waste, meat and fish scraps, coffee grounds etc) to your composter and sprinkle a little bran over the top. The bacteria, yeasts and fungi in the bran then get to work composting the waste. Bokashi Bran in 1KG bags.
Bokashi Bins are the quick and easy way to deal with your kitchen scraps and leftovers. It turns your unwanted peels, off-cuts and leftovers into liquid feed and a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden. A bokashi Bins doesn’t just hold your kitchen scraps en-route to the compost heap, but actually starts the composting process right in your kitchen without any bad smells. A Bokashi Bin is attractive enough to have on show in your kitchen or utility room, which will encourage and remind you to keep composting. Supplied as a TWIN Pack, you will receive 2 x 16L Bokashi Bins, 1KG of Bokashi Bran, full instructions, a levelling trowel, bran scoop and a liquid collecting cup, all delivered by courier in a colourful box.
How does it work? Each bin has a large 16 litre capacity, a tight fitting lid (so there is no smell, spills or flies) and 1KG of Bopkashi Bran is included. On a daily basis (or when you have scraps), just lift the lid, add your scraps (even meat or fish) and a handful of Bokashi Bran and the fermenting process begins. After a few days, the scraps start fermenting and liquids are released. This liquid is saturated in good bacteria and nutrients and should be drained off every few days, as an excellent 100% organic fertilizer for plants or it can be flushed down drains to clear pipes and stop nasty odours PLUS it promotes a healthy septic system. When the 1st bucket is full, start adding scraps to the 2nd bin. Add 2 handfuls of bran to the top of the full bin and then close the lid and leave it for 14 days while you fill the 2nd bin. Keep draining the liquid every 2 to 3 days. After 2-3 weeks the waste will be composted and it can be dug into the garden as a brilliant soil improver or composted further in a compost heap or wormery. rinse the bin out and then use ths bin again when the 2nd bin (now in use) is full. Keep rotating the bins in this fashion so one is being used while the other is composting.
Adding Food Scraps - All types of food scraps can be composted including meat, fish, veg, fruit, dairy, coffee, wilted flowers. Cut the scraps into small pieces and place into the Bokashi Bin on a regular basis. Add Bokashi Bran - the bran contains effective microbes that start to break down the kitchen scraps and should be added each time you add scraps. The composting process is anaerobic which means that the food scraps don’t rot or smell while breaking down.
Draining the liquid – Using the tap ion the front, any liquid should be drained off every few days. Dilute it 1:100 with water and use it as an excellent 100% organic fertiliser or flush it down drains to keep the pipes or septic tank healthy. Dig the compost into the garden - Once the bucket is full and all the liquid drained, the contents can be composted further by digging it into the garden or adding it to a compost heap or wormery.
