Composting

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 - £8.00 + delivery charge (£5.99 per order)
  • 330 litre compost bin - £10.00 + delivery charge (£5.99 per order)

Buy a compost bin

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

Our 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

Free compost for York residents

We offer free compost for residents each year available for collection from Harewood Whin, Rufforth.

Giveaway dates for 2018 will be advertised here in the spring.
