Save waste and save cash!

There are just a few days left for Residents in Brighton & Hove to snap up a discounted compost bin, before the price increases at the start of April.

Residents who want to start composting their kitchen and garden waste can still pick up a bin for just £16 with a £5.49 delivery charge through a scheme run by Brighton & City Council. There is also a ‘Buy One Get One Half Price’ offer, for residents with larger gardens or those teaming up with a friend or neighbour to buy a bin.

Spring is an excellent time for composting. With new shoots appearing, it’s time to clear out winter’s deadwood from planters and flower beds and a compost bin is a great way to recycle this decaying vegetation. Over time it will break down to produce rich nutritious compost that that will put some life back into the garden.

Councillor Pete West, Chair of the Environment and Sustainability Committee, said:

“Composting at home is an easy and highly sustainable way of recycling some of the daily waste we produce, while providing significant benefits for our gardens, reducing waste transported for disposal and improving our carbon footprint.

“Once you get started, you will be surprised at just how much daily household waste can be composted – not just grass cuttings and unwanted plants but organic kitchen waste, fruit and vegetable peelings, tea bags coffee grounds and even the contents of the vacuum.”
