To celebrate Compost Awareness Week (Sun 1 May - Sat 7 May), the Suffolk Waste Partnership is giving away free compost and offering advice from Master Composter Volunteers to highlight the environmental and financial benefits for those who choose to make and use their own compost.
Green fingered residents will be able to pick up a 25 litre bag of soil improver at Recycling Centres across the county and loose compost will be available at one event. There will also be a number of 'Compost Clinics' during the week where Suffolk Master Composters will be 'on call' to help improve your compost. Find details of times and venues for give-aways and clinics here.
This week also presents another opportunity to remind residents of our fantastic offers which provide an opportunity to purchase a wide range of subsidised compost bins starting at £8.99. Specialist systems designed to process cooked food waste start at £14.99. More than a third of the material in the average domestic waste bin consists of food waste which could be composted at home for the benefit of your own garden!
