Its free and better for the environment
More than a third of household waste is made up of organic material which can be composted. Grass cuttings unwanted plants, cardboard, newspapers, fruit and vegetables peelings are all ideal.
Derbyshire County Council has a scheme which offers compost bins at very reasonable prices - with the added bonus that they can be delivered to households.
Compost bins cost as little as £16.98, plus 5.49 delivery per order. They are supplied by Straight plc.

The low cost compost bin is made from recycled plastic and carries a 15 year guarantee. The unit doesn't require any putting together.
