Home composting and water butts

Composting is the easiest way to recycle your waste because you can do it at home and involve all the family.

Have a look at the Recycle Now website for more information about why it's important to compost.

Buying a compost bin

A Green Cone Food Waste Digester system is also available. Green Cone is a food waste digester in which waste that cannot be composted such as meat, fish, dairy products, bones and all cooked food can be disposed of. This is in addition to fruit and vegetable peelings.

The Green Cone food waste digester comes complete with a kitchen caddy and accelerator powder and shaker.
