Buy a compost bin or get free soil conditioner

Councils across Cambridgeshire offer low-cost compost bins, which can be delivered to your home.

Prices start at just £19.98 plus £5.99 delivery, with buy one get one half price offers on some bins.

Free soil conditioner

  • You can collect free soil conditioning compost from the AmeyCespa site off the A10 near Waterbeach. 
    You need to take your own shovel and sacks. 
    The soil conditioner is made from the contents of your green bins.

  • Or you can buy soil conditioner in 40litre sacks at £2.50 each at Thriplow (Gravel Pit Hill SG8 7HZ).
