Bath & North East Somerset Council is encouraging residents to think about composting during Compost Awareness Week (Sunday 7 to Saturday 13 May).

Home composting is an easy and effective way of recycling some of the daily household food waste produced, while providing significant benefits for gardens, reducing waste and improving our carbon footprint.

In November the Council is introducing waste collections every other week so composting could be a good way to reduce food and garden waste put out for collection.

To mark Compost Awareness Week Bath & North East Somerset Council has teamed up with to offer residents discounted compost converter bins from £17.98 and a ‘buy one, get one free’ offer for a second compost converter bin from only £8.99, when the recommended retail price is £39.

As well as compost bins, residents can also purchase food waste digesters and hot composters allowing them to compost all of their uncooked household food waste.

Not only can you reduce how much waste you put out for collection by composting all your household food waste, you can also turn all your garden waste into compost and you won’t need to pay for it to be collected.

If you don’t have room for a home compost bin, you can still recycle your food waste in your weekly food waste recycling collection.

The Council’s Waste Campaigns Officers can come to give talks to community groups and schools about home composting. They also have FREE compost bins available to schools (while stocks last). For more information please contact Council Connect on 01225 39 40 41 or email 

For full details or to order visit, or call 0844 571 4444.

The buy one get one half price offer is available on selected products. A one-off delivery charge of £5.99 applies
