Related topics: Leisure, culture and heritage

To encourage more people to home compost this autumn, Shropshire Council is working in partnership with Veolia Environmental Services and getcomposting.com to offer reduced-price compost bins, from just £16.98.

Better still, there is currently a special ‘buy one get one half price’ offer on some bins whilst stocks last.

To order, simply visit www.shropshire.getcomposting.com or call 0844 571 4444.

Home composting not only helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions, it is also an effective and sustainable method to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Steve Charmley, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member with responsibility for waste management, said:

“With the leaves beginning to fall from the trees many people will start to think about tidying up their garden – and the best way to dispose of leaves, grass and other garden waste is to compost it at home.

“We’re keen to encourage people to compost at home because it reduces the need for their garden waste to be collected and treated.  This saves taxpayers’ money and helps the environment.”
