Green cones

Did you know that about 30% of our dustbin content is kitchen and garden waste? A Guildford Labour Party survey found that only 10% of respondents were aware of this. Of the sample interviewed, 85% have a garden, but of these only 29% have a Green Cone. A green cone will digest kitchen waste for you. They are 5 from Guildford Borough Council. 

 

Composting

Of those we interviewed who have a garden, about half (53%) have a compost heap. There is clearly some scope for educating people about the benefits of composting. Compost bins are also available from the Council.

 

For more information on green cones and composters phone: 01483 445087.

 

Want to learn more about the mysteries of compost heaps? Guildford Council now has a resident expert who can advise you and who runs courses. For more information contact Ian Westgate on 01483 445088.
