You don't have to be an expert gardener to make your own compost - it's easy to do. Both kitchen and garden waste are great ingredients for the compost heap; you can even turn cardboard and paper into compost!
We are working in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council to supply our residents with low-cost compost bins.
We currently have two sizes of bin available:
- 220 litre compost bin - £8 + delivery charge (£5.99 per order)
- 330 litre compost bin - £10 + delivery charge (£5.99 per order)
We also have a 'buy one get one half price' offer on already discounted compost bins, which means you can team up with family members, friends or neighbours to get a compost bin for as little as £6 each.
Our compost bins
- are made in the UK from 100% recycled plastic
- have a secure windproof lid and removable side hatch
- are 'carbon footprint certified' by the Carbon Trust
- are guaranteed for 15 years
