Calderdale residents could save money and help protect the environment by taking advantage of special offers on compost bins.

To encourage residents to get composting, Calderdale Council has teamed up with Getcomposting.com to offer home compost bins at special prices.

Coun Scott Benton, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet member for corporate asset facilities management, housing and environment, said: “Typically, one third of all household rubbish and garden waste can be recycled at home in a compost bin.

“Home composting not only helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions, it can also be used as an effective and sustainable waste management method to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.”

Getcomposting also has a range of other green goodies including special offer water butts with buy one get one half price and a selection of accessories. For more details visit www.getcomposting.com or call 0844 571 4444.
