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%.

How to order a bin

In order to buy one of our reduced-priced compost bins you must:

  • Be a resident in statutory Essex (excludes Southend and Thurrock).
  • Be used in a residential garden.
  • Visit GetComposting 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.

Compost bin details

Compost bins are made from recycled plastic and requires no assembly. There's a delivery charge of £5.99 and have a guarantee of 7 years.

However, if you do't have much space, then GetComposting offer a number of smaller bins, including wormeries and the Bokashi system.
