Free compost bins available from Sutton Council

Free home composting bins will now be available to all Sutton residents, as part of the council’s continuing mission to go greener.

Residents can order their choice of a 220 or 330-litre bin and pay just £5 for delivery. Up to three bins can be ordered. 

Cllr Jill Whitehead, Liberal Democrat Chair of Sutton Council’s Environment and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “Breaking down waste through composting is fantastic for the environment given it produces hardly any methane, which damages the earth’s atmosphere. It is also helps your garden to bloom.

“So if you love your garden and want to help Sutton become a greener borough, sign up now to receive your free bin.”

Funding for the council scheme has been provided by the Department for Communities and Local Government after the council successfully bid for the money.

Soil conditioner (made from the council’s garden waste collections) is also available free of charge to residents at our Reuse and Recycling Centre.

More information is available on Sutton Council’s website.
