It’s easy to recycle your kitchen and garden waste at home. Compost it and over time it will break down and become a rich soil improver for your garden.
In a continued effort to encourage recycling, Dacorum residents are eligible to purchase a home compost bin at a fraction of the usual price through a subsidy provided by Hertfordshire County Council. Buy one get one half price
- You can also buy two compost bins and receive the second compost bin at half price (see the special offer leaflet below).
There are three easy ways to get started on composting
- Order your compost bin online at the Get Composting website
- Call the compost bin order line on 0844 571 44 44
- Download the special offer leaflet and application form below or call 01442 228000 to request one. The leaflet contains details of the special offer compost bins available to residents. Compost bin application form (PDF 2014 KB)
More information about home composting and this offer can be found on the Hertfordshire WasteAware website.
Every household in the borough is entitled to one free kitchen kaddy if you have not already received one. The kaddy will help to separate food waste in the kitchen. It can then be emptied into either your home compost bin or into the green wheeled bin for collection. To request a free kitchen kaddy, call 01442 228000 and ask for Waste Services (limited stock available).
