Broxbourne Council offers discounted composters to residents

Broxbourne Council is offering compost bins to residents at a reduced rate to encourage the recycling of more garden and kitchen waste.

An estimated 30 per cent of waste in household bins could be recycled using compost bins alone and the Council is encouraging residents to purchase and use composters as a part of their daily waste disposal. This is a key aspect of the Council's plans to increase recycling alongside a reduction in refuse.

Composter units start at £21.50 plus delivery with 50 per cent off a second unit when purchased together. Order by calling 0844 571 4444 or visiting the "Getcomposting" website.  

The Council also offers a range of advice to residents to help reduce waste and increase recycling levels at home. Please visit the ‘green waste plus' pages of the Council's website for more information.

Did you know...

Composting at home is the most environmentally friendly way of disposing of garden and kitchen waste and creates a nutrient rich food suitable for use on gardens.

To make the most nutrient rich compost, a mixture of ‘green' and ‘brown' items should be added to the compost bin. Green items include vegetable and fruit peelings, grass cuttings and tea bags or coffee grounds. Brown items include cereal boxes, egg boxes and toilet roll tubes.

The twelfth annual International Compost Awareness Week (CAW) will be celebrated from Sunday 6th to Saturday 12th May 2012. CAW aims to encourage more people to realise the benefits of home composting and the great results that can be achieved by using peat-free composts containing recycled material.
