Recycling - composters

We're keen to cut down on the amount of waste collected and home composting is a great way of diverting organic household waste from landfill.

Composting at home is an easy way to transform garden and kitchen waste into a healthy soil improver for your plants and shrubs. By simply adding a mixture of grass cuttings, plant prunings, used tea bags, scrunched up paper, fruit and vegetable peelings to a composting bin, you can, over time enjoy a more beautiful garden!.

Not only does home composting reduce your waste volume by up to 40 percent, it also provides a product that will improve the quality and structure of your soil, while suppressing disease and offering a cost effective alternative to peat based products.

Composters may be purchased through a Lincolnshire wide scheme at a reduced rate. For more information on the types of bins on offer or to find out how to start composting at home, please visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk.
