Got a garden or allotment? Make good use of food waste by composting all you can, from veg peelings to tea leaves.
To help get you started, we work with getcomposting.com to offer Somerset residents cut-price deals, such as a 220 litre bin for just £13.00. Save again with the buy-one-get-one-half-price offer and delivery at just £6.99 per order. Why not order two and share delivery with a friend, neighbour or relative?
Guaranteed for seven years, the bins are made from recycled plastic and require no assembly. More garden help here
You can start a new or additional 12-month garden waste collection at any time during the year via My Waste Services at somersetwaste.gov.uk and prices have been frozen so a single 180-litre bin subscription still costs £57.50, while a 10-pack of 90-litre garden waste sacks – useful for extra waste, new projects or when a full subscription is not needed – remains at £28.30.
To know all the news about your bin days, changes to your local recycle site, what new materials you can recycle and where, plus much more on saving money, materials and time, do not miss out – get on the inside track with many of your neighbours and friends.
