What is the Council offering?
H&F Council has teamed up with to offer household composters at subsidised prices. A Blackwall 220 litre composter is just £12, instead of the usual £39.99. You can also buy an even bigger model for just £14. There is also a delivery charge of around £6.

Is composting difficult?
No. You don’t need to be an expert to compost. Just add garden waste, kitchen scraps and water. And let nature do the rest.

Why compost?
Households in England throw away around four million tons of kitchen and garden waste every year that could have been composted.  Composting helps reduce the amount of waste sent for incineration.  Plus, you don't have to buy compost for the garden.

What can you compost?
As well as garden waste, you can compost fruit and vegetable peelings, egg shells, tea bags, shredded paper, and other organic waste.

What can't you compost?
Avoid meat, fish, or bones. These will attract unwelcome visitors.

Do I need to add worms?
No. Worms will find your compost, as if by magic.
