Give gardening plans some spring with cut-price bins

It may be mid-winter but Harborough residents can bag themselves a cut-price compost bin ahead of the arrival of spring.

Leicestershire County Council is offering compost bins at a reduced rate of £12.98 for a 220-litre bin or £14.48 for a 330-litre one (plus a £5.99 delivery charge).

Cllr Blake Pain, the county council’s cabinet member for waste management and the leader of Harborough District Council, said: “It’s never too early to start planning for the arrival of spring and a compost bin is an essential tool for any gardener. All of your green waste can easily be turned into a resource you can use to give your vegetables and flowers the best start.”

Harborough residents can order a composting bin by visiting the website www.getcomposting.com or by calling 0844 5714 444.

Residents can also buy one and get a second for half -price.
