DDC: Special offers to encourage county

residents to get composting

The Northamptonshire Waste Partnership is encouraging more residents to get composting with a fantastic offer being promoted in partnership with

Residents visiting the website can purchase discounted compost converters from as little as £17.98, and can buy a second composter for just £8.99 thanks to the fantastic ‘buy one get one half price’ offer. As well as compost bins, the site also offers food waste digesters and hot composters, allowing people to compost all of their household food waste

The Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) estimates that the use of a home compost bin diverts approximately 150 kilogrammes of waste per household away from landfill sites each year. Composting is simple to do and it can be surprising how much daily 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.

household waste can be composted and although many households already compost at home, we want others to get involved.

“This is a great incentive to encourage more residents to get composting and set up their own composting communities, sharing the rewards. Home composting 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 sent to landfill.” For full details of the offers, visit, or call 0844 571 4444.

The buy one get one half price offer is available on selected products. A one-off delivery charge of £5.99 applies.

Residents of Daventry District who are quick off the mark may be able to secure one of the limited number of compost bins which are being offered for £9.99 including delivery. The further subsidy on these bins has been arranged by Daventry District Council ahead of changes to waste and recycling collection services which will come into effect from June 4.
