Last chance to buy a low cost compost bin - 14.07.09

Sutton Council is encouraging locals to get composting this summer, and to help, is offering a limited number of compost bins at bargain prices - but you'll need to hurry, as the offer ends on 30 September.

The offer is designed to help locals to do their bit for the environment at very little cost. Compost bins are available from as little as £27 including delivery. 15,000 compost bins have already been distributed in the borough since the scheme was set up.

Cllr Colin Hall, Executive Member for Environment on Sutton Council, said:

"If you want to do your bit to help the environment, but aren't sure how to incorporate recycling into an already busy lifestyle, then composting at home is an easy way to make a difference. This great offer being run by the council is the perfect excuse to get started – so don't miss out on these bargain bins!"

Recycling kitchen and garden waste by putting it in a compost bin not only produces nutritious compost to help gardens bloom, but it also reduces the amount of waste we leave out for collection and send to landfill.

About a third of household waste can be composted at home – this includes kitchen and household waste (egg shells, kitchen paper, fruit and vegetable peelings, tea bags and even shredded bank statements) as well as garden waste (grass cuttings, pruning's and twigs).

So hurry and order your compost bin today and make the most of this fantastic offer. Visit or call 0845 076 0223 to order.
