WORCESTERSHIRE County Council is encouraging Malvern residents who are thinking about purchasing a compost bin to do so before the end this month as the prices will be increasing from April.
Currently, people can buy a 220 litre compost bin for £9.99 or a 330 litre one for £11.99 plus delivery.
However, from April 1 these bins will be £12.99 and £14.99 respectively, but will come with free delivery (worth £5.99).
Composting at home is a good way of reducing the amount of waste homeowners throw away as well as producing organic compost for the garden.
Richard Woodward, waste services manager at Worcestershire County Council said: “Buying a bin through Worcestershire County Council is still the most cost effective way to compost at home and reduce the amount of food waste you throw away.
“If you are unsure what to do, call upon one of the Council’s Master Composters who can provide you with free information and advice to get the best out of your compost bin.”
