Reduce Reuse Recycle - Your Green Guide      


It's always a good time to start composting! No matter what time of year you start to compost, the material will start to break down and produce lovely organic matter for you to put back onto your garden.

Many local councils offer a basic compost bin at a discounted price or even free of charge, so it it is worth checking before you buy your own.

However if you need to buy your own composter or have if you've outgrown your first one, here is a selection of the different types of composters available.

Plastic Composters Basic functional compost bins in moulded plastic
