Our double bay compost bins are a good choice if you have a medium to large-sized garden and need a bit more space to cope with compostable materials.
As usual our Double Compost Bin is made from 100% treated wood and will blend into your garden with its natural, rustic appearance.
Size wise it doubles the composting area of our standard single bins as it is two full size individual bins.
Our double compost bin is typically used in a garden where the lawn is cut with a petrol-driven push mower or a ride-on mower and where it takes you more than an hour to cut the grass. You can add further bays (with the add on bay option) later if you find this compost bin is too small.
This size is also popular for use on allotments (where most of the composting material is from plants other than grass) and for those who have space for a composting system.
Both bays are the same width size but you can choose the side to be different and we offer 3 different height options.
The Double Compost Bin come in a choice of 3 heights, 4 side widths and 4 front widths so we're confident we have one that will fit your space.
Simply select the combination that works best for you and we'll do the rest.

After ordering a similar compost bin from another supplier and still not receiving it after 6 months I opted for this one! It arrived within a week and the quality seems very good. Easy to build and looks great. Very happy!
Ordered and arrived within days. Assembled in minutes.
Simple to assemble no tools required - just some levelling .
The timber is treated and should last a long time.
I cannot fault this compost bin. The gentleman I spoke to couldn't have been more helpful and the bin arrived so promptly, and at a time to suit me. It was very well packed, the timber looks very durable, and was assembled by my grandson very quickly. There is enough play on the joints to enable panels to be slid out when the compost is ready to use. As long as your site has been made perfectly level there is nothing that could go wrong with this bin-it is brilliant.
A great product and service. My double compost bin arrived within a few days of ordering and I appreciated the timed delivery slot. The product itself was perfect. It arrived carefully packed and I assembled it myself in under an hour without needing to use any tools. I had looked at other companies supplying similar products but was really put off by the consistently negative reviews – badly cut and wet timber which made assembly difficult and requiring two people and use of power tools.

I bought a double 60cm version which arrived in three packages five days later. The wood itself is nice and solid, rough cut but not too rough so it looks very attractive. It took me around 45 minutes to assemble the double bin on ground which I had previously made sure was reasonably level. It should be noted that the dovetail joints have a bit of give in them which means that you have to take care lining up - even when the whole thing is assembled you can push it out of alignment a little. I used a large spirit level to check it both horizontally and vertically during and after assembly, and even so now I have filled both bins I notice it leans backwards very slightly. However it feels rock solid and with its lids looks really good in my garden. I've now ordered a larger version to go with it.

Pleasantly surprised by both the cost (I'd priced up doing it all from scratch and the wood alone came to nearly as much as this!) and the neat design - the dovetailed slotting is solid and easy to put together with really clear instructions. It looks good, comes in whatever size you want and looks like it'll last. Also I really appreciated seeing a checklist of parts that had been gone through and ticked off by a human being - although you order via a computerised form you know that there are people on the other end of this system, not an anonymous call-centre in some LEDC. I'd be delighted to order from them again.

DELIVERY - what happens
The majority of our products are big and heavy and so will be on a pallet which is delivered by lorry. We send our pallets out with the Palletways network and your local delivery depot will deliver to you.
The driver will be happy to unload the pallet as close as possible to your property, but is unlikely to take it to the bottom of your garden. Strictly speaking, the driver is only obligated to deliver to your kerbside so please be aware of this if access is a problem. The driver will not be able to move the pallet over gravel or any area where damage may be caused to your property.
If you have any delivery restrictions - narrow lane, hard to find property, please let us know so we can pass it on to the local delivery depot.
When your order has been despatched we will email you to let you know. The local delivery company will then contact you directly to arrange a convenient time to deliver the pallet to you. You don't have to be in to accept delivery as the pallet can be left safe.
If you haven't heard from the delivery company within 2 days of your goods leaving us, then give us a call so we can sort it out for you.
