Green-fingered residents will not have to dig too deep into their pockets to buy a compost bin, thanks to a special one day offer.
Ryedale District Council, in partnership with York & North Yorkshire Waste Partnership (YNYWP), is organising a subsidised sale of compost bins at Ryedale District Council’s Streetscene Depot, Showfield Lane, Malton, on Saturday, September 6.
A 220 litre Compost Converter bin will be available for £8 and the 330 litre version for £9 - a fraction of the recommended retail price of £40.
Bins must be pre-ordered and paid for in advance as there will be no cash sales on the day.
They can be ordered anytime from Monday, August 4, by telephoning YNYWP on (01609) 532512. The closing date for bins is Thursday, September 4.
Residents are allowed a maximum of two compost bins per household.
