East Staffordshire residents are being given the opportunity to ‘do their bit’ for the environment by composting kitchen and garden waste. East Staffordshire Borough Council have signed up to a Countywide home composting scheme, which means that residents in East Staffordshire can purchase reduced price compost bins and accessories.  *To order please visit or phone 0844 5714444.

Home composting is the ideal way to waste less, recycle more and save money too. Simply putting most kitchen and garden waste into a compost bin will produce a free supply of rich brown compost, keeping the garden blooming year after year.

Home composters are available in the 220 litre and 330 litre sizes and prices start from £10.00. Water butts are also available to buy through the scheme.
