HUNTINGDONSHIRE, with one of the country's best records for recycling, is also proving fertile ground for composting. Since the beginning of the year 1,295 residents in the district have taken advantage of cut-price compost bins from the council-sponsored Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership - more than another district in the county. South Cambridgeshire's residents are a close second with 1,125. Full-size bins cost as little as £8 and are made largely from recycled material, with kitchen caddies available for waste food at just £2. WRAP says the onset of autumn is a good excuse for householders to start thinking about recycling waste food in the compost bin.
