Revolutionise the way you think about composting. Using an organic fermentation process, the Bokashi Bin recycles all your domestic kitchen waste into valuable soil conditioner.

Dispose of all your waste in your kitchen, with no smell, no trip to the compost heap and no work to turn the heap.

Invented in Japan, this all-food recycling system uses effective microbes or "bokashi" — a Japanese word meaning "fermented organic matter" — to decompose the matter. The fermentation process does not produce smells, so you can keep the bucket under your sink or in your home.

The Biome Bokashi two bin set contains:
– recycling bucket (in your choice of colours, 2 x tan & green, or 2 x black, or one of each) with airtight lid
– 2 litre bokashi (enough to last the average household 3 to 4 weeks),
– instructions.

Freight surcharge: please note that shipments of the Bokashi bin to all areas of WA, NT & TAS and some areas of SA, VIC, NSW & QLD will incur an additional freight charge. If applicable, we will check this with you before despatch.

How it works:
Every time you add waste to the Bokashi bucket, you sprinkle a small amount of bokashi onto the waste (the bokashi is a fine grain like mixture). Once the container is filled to capacity (about 3 to 4 weeks for the average household), you can immediately shallow bury the fermented waste in your garden, planter or outdoor compost.
Or, you can let the waste continue to ferment for two weeks in the other bin and then transfer the matter into your garden. The extra fermentation means the material will break down faster in the soil.

In 2 or 3 weeks, the waste you have buried will have broken down into soil (humus) and will be rich with nutrients, microbes and enzymes, all naturally produced.

As the Bokashi bin fills, you also drain off a liquid that can be used diluted as a fertilizer or undiluted in septic tank systems and plumbing drains (the microbes help to break down waste in the system). You can even just tip it down your sink to help keep your drains clean.

Dimensions: 30cm side x 30cm side x 41cm high. It will fit in the cupboard under some sinks, depending on your space of course.

5L and 2L bokashi refill bags are available. You can also read more about why fermentation is better than composting under the details of the 5L Bokashi refill.

For those living in apartments, you could pass the fermented waste on to a grateful community garden, friends, relatives or the apartment gardener.

Compost

I now have 2 of the buckets which works very well so that I always have an empty dry one to start. The buckets are easy to clean and no smell in the kitchen. The air tight lid seals well and comes off easily.

Love this easy option to deal with our food scraps. It’s so easy to use and manage. We’ve reduced the rubbish going to landfill by 80%. So happy.

Love these, reduces so much waste going to landfill!

These are so easy to use and so good for the garden! We have reduced our household rubbish by at least half. I've become more aware of food waste and my shopping, cooking and serving habits have changed for the better so that we dont waste as much money on food going to waste!
