SCENIC Rim Regional Council has confirmed support for a Compost Bin Rebate Program by providing funding for a 50% rebate of the total price of select compost bins from your local ‘Mitre 10’ retailer.
The Compost Bin Rebate Program will commence on 1 October 2010 and conclude as rebate funds are exhausted. The rebate will consist of 50% off the total price of a Gardenwise compost bin which is valued at $50, saving individual residents $25 per purchase.
Deputy Mayor Cr Dave Cockburn said Council’s Compost Bin Rebate Program is a chance for Scenic Rim residents to take a constructive role in sustainable living.
“I encourage residents of the Scenic Rim community to buy a compost bin and get involved in limiting the amount of biodegradable materials ending up in landfill as almost half of all rubbish to Council’s landfill consists of organic material.”
The rebate opportunity is available to residents of the region (limited one per property) for the Gardenwise compost bin from ‘Mitre 10’ stores located in Beaudesert, Boonah and Mt Tamborine.
To ensure your eligible for the 50% rebate please contact Council to receive a voucher in the mail. Vouchers must be presented and surrendered upon purchase of the compost bin in order to obtain the discount.
Remember to get in quick as the rebate is limited to funding availability. Also note that compost bin stocks will vary from store to store so please be considerate of waiting time for orders.
For more information or to obtain a compost bin voucher please contact Council’s Environment Department on (07) 5540 5437.
