15 Year Guarantee against wood rot
The Chamberlain Easy-Load Wooden Compost Bin

Easy-Load... and Easy-Unload

Impressive 897 Litres capacity

Finally, a traditional wooden composter that's easy to load directly from your wheelbarrow - at a sensible price.
Developed by "Queen of the Allotment," Wendy Chamberlain.

Removable Slats at the Front

  • Easy to fill direct from your wheelbarrow
  • Easy to dig out mature compost from the bottom

15 Year Guarantee Against Wood Rot

  • Pressure treated pine - treatment prevents wood rot for at least 15 years

The Problem

The big problem with compost bins is... How to load? And... How to unload?
Plastic bins have a small hole at the top (try tipping your wheelbarrow into one of them!) and a small hole at the bottom (that's so you can scrape out a tiny bit of mature compost with your trowel).
Wooden slatted bins, while hitting a sensible price point, have to be completely dis-assembled to harvest the compost or to load direct from a barrow.

The Solution - The Chamberlain Easy-Load Compost Bin

Removable slats at the front allow easy access for loading and unloading of the compost.

You can remove any combination of the front slats allowing you access to
just the bottom, just the top or the whole of the front.
Designed for good air circulation to help speed up the composting process.
Made from a pressure treated pine with a highly attractive smooth-plained finish.

"Wood was damp and - being rough-cut - not easy to slot together. Instruction sheet could have been clearer - it took me some time to realise that the bin is higher at the front than the back."

"Service good but unfortunately one of the compost bins was in a broken package. Screws had gone and three slats had ends broken off. I used my own screws and the small breakages did not affect construction. I don't know if the package left Primrose in this condition or whether it was broken in transit"

"This is the second compost bin I have bought from Primrose. On both occasions there was minor damage to some of the timber parts. The packaging does not proect the more delicate corners well enough. It doesn't prevent the bin being constructed but is an irritation that it is to perfect."

"It was very wet in the packaging a lot of the thin pieces of wood split when the supplied screws were inserted into the correct areas and on two occasions small pieces came off completely. All in all I am not very happy with the product and would not recommend it to any friends or family."

"We haven't unpacked them yet, but they look good. We've bought several items before from Primrose and have been happy with them, so we're trusting that the compost bins will also be up to the mark."

"The wood was very wet, screws were missing, and the product was poorly machined meaning it needed work to get it to fit together properly."
