More York residents are composting waste

MORE residents are composting their waste in York, council chiefs have claimed as changes to garden waste collections loom.
Green bins will not be collected between November and March as City of York Council looks to cut its costs for the service by £125,000 over two years. Residents will also have to pay for an additional green waste bin.
The authority said there had been a “positive uptake” in the number of composting bins sold during October, with the council and Yorwaste having given away 800 tonnes of compost this year.
It said 300 composting bins were bought on a single day this month, with more information at york.gov.uk/composting
