Compostabin plastic compost bin
« on: October 22, 2020, 09:46 »
Hello - this is a really dumb question, so please don't make fun of me.  I have just taken over an allotment which includes this Compostabin plastic compost bin.  I cannot get the lid off!  It turns but nothing seems to happen.  I don't want to pull too hard for fear of breaking it.  The bin is in decent condition so I was planning on keeping it.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Its probably one of two types, the first you have to turn to line up the lid with cutouts in the base that allow you to lift it off. Try rotating while pulling gently upward until the cutouts engage. These usually have a handle on each side of the lid. The other type is just held in place because the lid is slightly smaller than the lip on the base. For these you just need to apply some force and off theyll pop. Try approach one first and if no joy then just give it a good tug.

Thank you, Nobbie!  There were no alignment cutouts, so I used brute force.
