Discounted compost bins are being offered to Northamptonshire residents in a bid to encourage more people to get composting.
As part of International Compost Awareness Week (5-11 May), the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership is working with getcomposting.com to offer discounted compost converters from as little as £18.50. Residents can also buy a second composter for just £9.25 thanks to a fantastic 'buy one get one half price' offer. More »
Get composting's Blackwall and Rainsaver products are made from 100% percent recycled plastic, including a combination of plastics collected by councils from waste segregation sites and kerbside collections as well as industrial waste such as old gas pipes, old wheeled bins and car bumpers.
As well as compost bins, the site also offers food waste digesters and hot composters, allowing people to compost all of their household food waste.
The Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) estimates that the use of a home compost bin diverts approximately 150 kilogrammes of waste per household away from landfill sites each year.
It is also a cheaper alternative to chargeable garden waste collections and has the added benefit of producing a free supply of top-quality compost, which has multiple uses including as a soil improver, mulch or plant feed and helps gardens retain moisture.
Cllr Tim Allebone, Chairman of the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership, said: "Composting is simple to do and around 30% of the average household waste can be composted.
"Although many households already compost at home, we want others to get involved, and this is a great incentive to encourage more residents to get composting and set up their own composting communities, sharing the rewards.
"Home composting organic waste also helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions and can be used as an effective and sustainable waste management method to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill."
For full details of the offers, visit www.getcomposting.com, or call 0844 571 4444.
The buy one get one half price offer is available on selected products. A one-off delivery charge of £5.99 applies.
The Northamptonshire Waste Partnership (NWP) is a partnership of Northamptonshire councils and was set up to improve joint working arrangements on waste management matters.

Northamptonshire County Council has replaced Street Doctor with FixMyStreet which will now allow customers to upload photos – making it clearer where highways defects are located. People will be able to easily map where the defect is and also view assets such as signs, trees and adopted highways so it is easy to identify exactly which one they are talking about when they make a report.
