The following from Cornwall Waste Action’s website *.
You have until the end of September to order one of the heavily discounted food waste digesters that are on offer from Cornwall Council.
The great offers, that include delivery to your door, are available on units that allow you to dispose of all of your food waste (cooked and uncooked) at home and you get to feed your plants too!
Food waste is a real problem; it is a wasted resource, is expensive to dispose of and produces harmful methane when it breaks down in landfill. Therefore, we are offering options that should help everyone to dispose of their food waste at home and the Waste Awareness team are happy to help you decide which unit would best fit your needs.
Green Johannas are similar to a standard compost bin and will take all food waste and garden waste; they are only suitable for households with a garden. Green Cones are food waste digesters rather than compost bins; they take food waste but no garden waste.
They are suitable for people with a very small garden or those who already have a traditional compost bin system. Both units cost £20, a substantially discounted price and kitchen caddies are also available for just £2 when you buy a digester or compost bin.
If you would be interested in managing more of your food waste at home and would like to purchase one of these units please either ring 0845 076 0223 quoting CAVE9 or visit www.recyclenow.com/compost and enter your postcode.
If you would like further information about the offers please call 01872 323510 and ask to talk to the Waste Awareness Team.
