Compost bin offers

Advice about home composting including how to make a compost bin or to buy a discounted compost bin is available from the Surrey Environment Partnership.

Composting is an inexpensive, natural process, transforming kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for the garden.

As well as green garden waste, residents can compost fruit and vegetable peelings, egg shells, tea bags, cardboard and shredded paper.

After nine to twelve months, you will have your very own compost, ready to put back on your garden to help nourish new plants.

Surrey residents can buy reduced price compost bins from Get Composting.
