food waste digesters

food waste scheme

Cumbria County Council in partnership with the district and borough councils are delighted to be able to offer householders in Allerdale, Barrow, Carlisle, Copeland and Eden the opportunity to buy home food waste digesters (similar to garden compost bins) for a fraction of their recommended retail costs.  This offer has now expired in South Lakeland as the funding limit has been reached.

The discount is available in Allerdale, Barrow and Eden thanks to a successful funding bid to the Department for Communities and Local Government's Weekly Collection Support Scheme. It has been extended to Carlisle and Copeland using Waste Infrastructure Capital Grant funding.

There are two kinds of food waste digester available - Green Cones and Green Johannas - so there is an option to suit you, your household and your lifestyle. The cones are available from as little as £ 15 instead of the recommended retail price of £ 79.50 and the Johannas for just £ 20 rather than the £ 108.90 that they retail at. Both prices include delivery.

So if you live in Allerdale, Eden, Barrow, Carlisle or Copeland you can find out more about these fantastic products and even order yours today by visiting  or by calling freephone on 0800 013 1304
