Food Waste Digesters

We are delighted to be able to offer householders the opportunity to buy home food waste digesters for a fraction of their recommended retail costs.

They are available in Allerdale, Barrow and Eden thanks to funding from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and in Carlisle and Copeland thanks to Waste Infrastructure Capital Grant funding. This offer has now expired in South Lakeland as sales have reached the funding capacity

There are two kinds of food waste digester available - Green Cones and Green Johannas - so there is an option to suit you. Both units sit in your garden like a regular compost bin BUT they accept ALL of your food waste, cooked and uncooked. Both units work on the process of generating more heat and encouraging better airflow than your standard compost bin to supercharge the process.
