4Feeding your Green Cone
Feed your Green Cone as often as you like, just remember to close the flip lid tight so you do not attract vermin or fruit flies.
In a sunny spot with well-drained soil you should be able to add about 4 litres/4 kg of food waste to your unit weekly. This is the average amount created by a family of four.
Like all compost systems its best to start slower and build up to the full capacity. With the Green Cone this only takes a few weeks.
The amount of waste your Green Cone can break down depends on its temperature, the population of bacteria and the mix of waste added.
Did you know?
Microorganisms thrive in the heat, so digestion will slow down during the colder months. Don’t fret if you find that the level of scraps is not going down when the temperature drops - this is only natural and can be boosted with the help of our accelerant, sold separately. Whatever you do, don’t use chemicals as you might kill the beneficial bacteria.
