i agree with nosey unless you need to make space if you put it on veg patch.spread it thick where it will be needed and let the worms take it down over winter

If your bin is full and you need to add more waste then I would tip it out onto the garden now and cover it with a plastic sheet to reduce leaching. Dig it in at the ned of the winter. If you can manage without emptying the bin then just leave it to carry on working.

I think Bulba is right. Next spring you will need it to line pea and bean trenches to conserve moisture.
