Your average household produces over a tonne of compostable waste per year and, as an allotmenteer this will be much higher. Composting waste will provide you with nutritious compost that can be used on your plot and it is easy! You can either build you own compost bin or buy a pre-made one. Trafford Council has joined forces with Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority to offer their residents the opportunity to purchase compost bins at discounted prices.

For more details, visit the get composting website, or to order by telephone, please ring 0844 571 4444.

There are a couple of very good guides on the Which website for building a compost bin and making good compost.
