Home composting is an easy and effective way of recycling some of the daily waste we produce, while providing significant benefits for our gardens, reducing waste sent to landfill and improving our carbon footprint. It is simple to do and once you get started, you will be surprised at how much organic household waste can be recycled. 

It is also a cheaper alternative to chargeable garden waste collections and has the added benefit of producing a free supply of top quality compost that will put life back into the garden.

Emma Stuart, Waste Prevention Project Manager for Worcestershire County Council, said: "More than 30% of the average household waste can be composted and although many households already compost at home, we want others to get involved.  Home composting of organic waste also helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions and can also be used as an effective and sustainable waste management method to reduce the amount of waste the County Council has to dispose of.  With free delivery now on all compost bins and the very competitive prices, plus a free compost caddy if you buy your bin during Compost Awareness Week, there are plenty of reasons for residents to start composting at home."

For details of all the bins available and to order please visit or call 0844 571 4444 quoting the reference CAW17 to receive your free compost caddy.
