Reducing your waste and composting

Food waste composters

We have teamed up with Great Green Systems to offer Wiltshire residents discounted food waste composters, called a Green Johanna.

Special subsidy offer. You can buy one for only £50 (discounted from £128.69)

Reducing your waste

Recycling all you can is great, but the best thing you can do with your waste is to reduce it. Not only does reducing cut down on waste, it also cuts down on your bills.

Home composting

Up to 50% of the rubbish we throw away can be composted.

Composting is nature's way of recycling. Millions of tiny, microscopic bugs eat the things we put into our compost bins and break it down into a crumbly, soil-like material - compost.

This compost can then be used in pot plants or on the garden to improve the condition of your soil, in turn saving you money.
