Households in Bourne and the Deepings are being urged to help drive down the area’s carbon footprint and make life greener by turning to composting.

A campaign to encourage people in the recycling of household waste is under way, led by environmental leaders at South Kesteven District Council (SKDC).

Home composting enables households to recycle their daily waste, providing benefits for their gardens and reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill sites.

Keith Rowe, SKDC’s business manager for streetcare services, said: “More than 30 per cent of your waste can be composted and although many households already compost at home, we want others to get involved.

“By home composting organic waste and setting up your own composting communities to share the rewards, you can help to significantly reduce carbon emissions and it can also be used as an effective and sustainable waste management method.”

“That is why we want to encourage more residents to get composting.
