Home composting

Home composting is a great way to get an endless supply of soil improver for your garden. It also helps to reduce the amount of waste we send for incineration.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is offering residents the opportunity to buy a cut-price compost bin from only £17.98.

Every year, Basingstoke and Deane residents throw away over 8,000 tonnes of food, most of which is unused. However, fruit and vegetable peelings can be composted at home.

Composting at home cuts CO2 emissions and turns most kitchen and garden waste into a free supply of compost that will keep your garden blooming year after year.
