In partnership with GetComposting.com, we are offering discounted compost bins for residents this spring, helping us all have greener gardens.
Composting has countless benefits, and now is the perfect time to get started! The process simply involves recycling your daily plant and food waste, along with any other organic materials you can find.
This can include grass cuttings, unwanted plants, organic kitchen waste such as fruit and vegetable peelings, tea bags and coffee grounds.
Together, these will naturally decompose over time in our specialised compost bins to produce a ready-made mixture rich in nutrients to feed your soil and nourish your garden. It really is that simple, and it’s a great way to minimise waste in your household, which would otherwise go to landfills and contribute to polluting the atmosphere with harmful methane emissions.
Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Deborah Watson said, “We have seen a huge increase in people getting outside gardening and home composting will help our residents make a valuable contribution to improving the environment and provide them with a free, quality product to make their gardens beautiful. I hope as many people as possible across Bolsover District will take advantage of this great offer.”
To encourage residents to start composting, we have partnered with GetComposting.com to offer Home Compost Bins at special prices, starting from £20 with an additional Buy One, Get One Half Price offer on all ‘Blackwell Compost’ bins. This is the perfect opportunity to kick-start your home composting and team up with a friend or neighbour to save some money too!
Home compost bins, together with a range of special offer water butts and additional accessories can be ordered via www.getcomposting.com, or through calling 0844 571 4444.
