The Suffolk Waste Partnership has today launched a fantastic new scheme to help people compost garden waste at home across the county.
A number of items can be purchased through www.getcomposting.com which helps people reduce their garden and kitchen waste. This includes the opportunity to buy a 220 litre compost bin for £8.99 or a 330 litre bin for only £9.99, which is 50% off its normal retail price.
Residents who choose to buy one compost bin can get another of the same size for half price, so if two neighbours share the cost, there's quite a saving to be found. There is limited stock of the compost bins, so get your order placed now. As well as the composting leaflet residents will receive, the Suffolk Waste Partnership can also help with lots of information and tips on how to get the most from composting at home.
Working in partnership with the national composting experts at www.getcomposting.com, the scheme helps residents reduce the amount of garden and food waste currently being disposed every year. Suffolk currently throws around 50,000 tonnes of organic waste into their rubbish bins every year. This costs the Suffolk taxpayer over £3.5 million.
Chair of the Suffolk Waste Partnership, Cllr Clive Arthey, said:
"This is a great promotion which will help Suffolk compost more of our garden and food wastes. Composting at home is easy; it can save you money, and making free compost by using up all your leftover food and garden clippings is better for the environment. So why not give it a go?"
Residents can purchase subsidised composting bins by visiting www.getcomposting.com or by calling 0844 571 4444 quoting SUF16L.
