A great opportunity to start composting and take an active role in sustainable living
Scenic Rim Regional Council will provide a 50% rebate on the purchase of selected compost bins as part of its continuing support for International Composting Awareness Week (7-12 May).
The offer will commence on 14 May and continue until rebate funding is exhausted. The rebate will be available to residents of the region (limit one per property) for selected compost bins purchased at participating ‘Mitre 10’ retailers located in Beaudesert, Boonah,
Mt Tamborine and Kalbar.
The rebate will consist of 50% (maximum $25), off the total price of a ‘Gardenwise’ square compost bin valued at $50, or alternatively $25 off any other selected compost bin stocked by the retailer.
A Council spokesperson said the Compost Bin Rebate Program is a great opportunity to start composting and take an active role in sustainable living.
“We are encouraging residents to take up the offer and help limit the amount of biodegradable material that ends up as landfill.”
To be eligible for the rebate, residents must phone Council or apply via Council’s website to receive a voucher in the mail. Vouchers must be presented and surrendered upon purchase of the compost bin to obtain the discount.
Remember to get in quick as the rebate is limited to funding availability. Please note that compost bin stocks will vary from store to store, and a waiting period may apply for orders.
For more information or to obtain your compost bin voucher, please contact Council’s Waste Department on (07) 5540 5433, or apply through Council’s website www.scenicrim.qld.gov.au/waste-management.
