Composting for less than a tenner

Hambleton and Richmondshire residents have just one more chance to start composting for under a tenner.

A one day sale of compost bins for just £8 is being held in Northallerton next month.

The York and North Yorkshire Waste Partnership has reduced the price of the 330 litre bins – which are perfect for composting fruit and vegetable peelings, paper and card, garden cuttings and grass.

The one day sale takes place on Wednesday September 5 at Northdale Horticulture on Yafforth Road in Northallerton from 4 – 6.30pm

Bins can be pre-ordered ready for collection by calling North Yorkshire County Council’s waste and countryside services on 01609 532512 by 4pm on August 31. There will be a limited number of compost bins available on the day – payment must be made by cash or cheque.

Residents can purchase two compost bins at the subsidised price. Proof of address must be presented on the day. Bins must be collected on the day, with prices valid until the end of the sale.
