With a new cut price bin offer and free courses across the county Norfolk County Council is aiming to make it easier for people to get composting this spring.
Free compost workshops will be taking place between May to September in places across the county including South Wootton Village Hall on Wednesday 20 June, 1pm – 3pm, and Downham Market Town Hall on Thursday 12 July, 6pm – 8pm.
West Norfolk residents are urged to book their place early on the course which will not only give them all the practical information they need to compost successfully, but also everyone who attends the course will get the chance to have their own brand new free compost bin delivered to their home. The 2-hour beginner’s workshops will be delivered by Master Composter volunteers who will give expert knowledge and handy hints and top tips.
For anyone not able to make it to a course there’s still a helping hand to get people composting as from 1 April there will be 4,000 compost bins available to buy at a reduced price – there will be a choice of either a 220-litre bin for £11.99 or a 330-litre bin for £13.99.
For information on how to buy a bin, sign up for a composting course and for hints and tips on being a successful composter visit www.recyclefornorfolk.com/compost
