How much will a full bokashi bucket weigh? I am concerned that I will not be strong enough to handle a full bucket… to get it outside to bury.

The buckets can get fairly heavy when full. However, you don’t have to fill the bucket up. If a full bucket is too heavy, you can choose to only fill your bucket up to a comfortable weight. When the bucket is sufficiently full, simply cover the food waste with a plastic bag, old plate, or similar and leave to ferment for 2 weeks.

Many of our customers who don’t produce a lot of food waste do this, so that they don’t have to wait for the bucket to be completely full before adding it to their garden.

Hope that helps 🙂
