Garden waste such as grass cuttings, dried leaves, twigs as well as vegetable peelings can be composted in a traditional compost bin or heap. But to compost cooked food and diary products you need a food waste digester.

To buy a discounted traditional compost bin from £13 including delivery, visit the Get composting website or call 0844 571 4444.

Surrey County Council is also working in partnership with Great Green Systems to offer Surrey residents discounted food waste digesters; Green Cones from £55 including delivery and Green Johannas from £76 including delivery. Visit the Great Green Systems website to find out more or call 0800 731 2572.
