Composting at home has a range of great benefits and allows you to turn some of your food waste into a nutrient rich food for your garden. That’s why Essex County Council is working with Straights to subsidise compost bins by 50%.

To order your subsidised compost bin you’ll need to:

  • Be a resident in statutory Essex (excludes Southend and Thurrock).
  • Be used in a residential garden.
  • Visit and enter your postcode. Your discount will then automatically be added.
  • Select the right size compost bin for your garden: 220 litres is £9.25, or 330 litres is £10.25.
  • If you purchase two compost bins, you can get one of them half price.

Please note:

  • There's a delivery charge of £5.99
  • Compost bins are made from recycled plastic
  • There’s no assembly required
  • They are guaranteed for 7 years
