7When the bin is full

It usually takes a household of 4 people who eat at home most nights about 3-4 weeks to fill a 15-20 litre bokashi bin. When your bokashi bin is full you can either leave it to ferment further (and start filling another bin), or empty it. There are a couple of different ways to do this. Also remember to wash out your bin between uses!


  • If you find you are filling up the bin too quickly, or want your scraps to break down more before emptying them out, consider getting a second bin and rotating between bins. While one is being filled, the other can continue to ferment. Just remember to keep tapping off the bokashi juice for both bins. You can purchase a bokashi bin at the end of this tutorial, and a second one here if you need it.
