Grab a bargain bin and start composting now
A buy one, get one half-price offer continues on home composters making them the perfect Christmas gift for that certain someone who has everything.
Through the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership they are already being offered at a significantly better than half-price discount deal.
Composting your garden and kitchen waste provides a free supply of nutritious soil conditioner to help your garden bloom next year, encouraging better growth in flowers, fruit and vegetables.
It also helps to reduce carbon emissions, and cuts down the amount of waste sent to landfill.
All you need for good quality compost is mixture of ingredients. Ideally it should be a 50/50 mix of green garden waste, vegetable peelings, old flowers, grass cuttings, garden prunings, coffee grounds, tissues and paper napkins, shredded cardboard and even vacuum cleaner dust.
Once you get used to composting you’ll be surprised how easy it is to do and you’ll certainly need the second bin.
Cllr Richard Wright, NKDC’s Executive Member for sustainability said, “Making your own compost is a great way of transforming ordinary household waste into something very useful. It also cuts down the amount of waste going into bins and ultimately landfill sites. The great offer price for these compost bins means that most households should be able to start composting.
“They’re especially useful for the winter months when collection of brown bins of comestibles is less frequent in the District, and indispensible during the growing season.”
In partnership with getcomposting.com, the bins are offered at a reduced price.
£16 for a 220 litre compost bin and buy a second bin for only £8. (RRP £39)
£19 for a 330 litre bin and buy a second bin for only £9.50. (RRP £49)
