A home composting workshop will take place at Rugby Library on Saturday.
The workshops will teach residents everything they need to start composting and anyone attending the workshop will come away with a free compost bin.
The scheme is part of a drive to encourage more people to compost their food and garden waste at home.
A recent waste analysis survey in Warwickshire found that around 16,000 tonnes of compostable waste was going in landfill via the grey wheelie bins costing the county £1.6 million a year.
Each bin used to its full capacity saves the county £12.00 each year in disposal costs so starts to make a saving within a year.
Cllr Jeff Clarke, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Corporate Business & Environment : “Composting food and garden waste at home is a great way to the amount of compostable waste sent to landfill and makes savings. It also gives the home owner a great free soil conditioner.”
There will be two 45 minute sessions held at Rugby Library:
Session 1 – 10.00am
Session 2 – 11.00am
