Composting is a great way to make something useful out of your rubbish, it is a natural form of recycling garden and kitchen rubbish such as vegetables, fruit, grass cuttings and plant leaves into quality compost. Approximately half of the rubbish in your bin is organic material, which can be turned into compost.
Lancashire County Council has joined a new Home Composting scheme so that residents will be able to purchase a range of compost bins and accessories at a reasonable rate with all the information you need to get started.
Please check out the new website at www.lancashire.getcomposting.com (external link) to see all the new offers. There is a range of compost bins large and small as well as wormeries and composting accessories. Bins can be ordered and paid for online.
To order and pay for your bin by phone call 0844 571 4444 (calls cost 5p per minute from a BT landline; other landline or mobile operators may vary)
