Calls to bin the bonfires and get home composting
Households are being urged to consider composting their garden waste instead of lighting a bonfire this autumn.
The Leicestershire Waste Partnership, which is made up of the county, district and borough councils, is asking people to think about home composting as an alternative.
Chairman Guy Jackson said: "Composting is an inexpensive, natural way of transforming your prunings, spent bedding plants and grass cuttings into a valuable rich food for your garden, while reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill."
To encourage residents to compost, the partnership has teamed up with the Get Composing website to offer to offer reduced price compost bins.
