Get Composting This Autumn And Save Money

Green fingered Poole residents can still buy a discounted compost bin with offers available until 31 March 2014.

Autumn is an excellent time for composting as fallen leaves and other garden waste is in abundance. A compost bin is a great way to recycle this waste in an environmentally-friendly way. Over time the waste will break down to produce rich nutritious compost that can be used to put life back into the garden.

Councillor Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for a Prosperous and Sustainable Poole, Borough of Poole, said: "Composting at home is an easy and effective way of recycling garden waste. It not only reduces waste sent to landfill and improves our carbon footprint, but if you start composting now you will have a nutritious free supply of compost that will enrich your garden next spring. So with the added offer of discounted compost bins, this is the perfect time to start composting." 

The cheapest compost bin currently on offer through a scheme run by Borough of Poole costs £6 with a £5.49 home delivery charge. There is also a 'Buy one get one half price' offer, adding extra value to residents with larger gardens or those who team up with a friend or neighbour to buy a bin.

Compost bins and accessories can be ordered online at www.getcomposting.com or by calling 0844 571 4444.
