Nice point that we have to learn from those with experience. I inherited the compost bins - wooden slates, quite large, two of them. I haven't turned them since we moved in about a year ago, so I shall do that this weekend. Do I just stick a fork in and turn it over as much as I can??

Ahh, ok, good to know I am just being paranoid!  Thanks everyone, I shall use the compost. and a very good point that we will never eradicate weeds - a look at my garden tells me as much!

about a year ago, some weeds were accidently put in our compost bins - I didn't realise this had happened until a few months ago when my husband told me. Anyway, obviously I dont want to now use the compost on our garden, but is there anything I can do with it, rather than just digging it all out of the bins and taking it to the recycling centre? e.g. could I put it in black bags and leave it in the sun for a few weeks (if we have that much sun!) - would the build up of heat kill any remaining weed seeds?
