Sort out your compost bin now

We work with getcomposting.com to offer Somerset residents great -triple decker deals on bargain compost bins. Save once with a 220-litre bin for just £13.00. Save twice with buy-one-get -one- half-price. Save thrice with £6.99 delivery per order. Smart gardeners order two and share delivery with a friend, neighbour or family member.

Hurrah, Recycle More recycles more

Somerset’s recycling rate is at an all time high and rubbish levels have fallen, thanks to green-thinking residents. The rate jumped from 2020-21’s 52.2% to just over 56% in 2021-22 and could go higher as Recycle More beds in. And families discarding tonnes less rubbish every week have far emptier refuse bins.

By embracing Recycle More, Somerset’s recycling performance is likely to put the county in the top 10% when national figures are shared later in the year.
