The campaign aims to slash the volume of food waste as part of an attempt to meet government targets.
The council has secured £1.5m of funding from the Government for what it
described as the biggest ‘green give-away’ by a local authority. The Waste and Resources Action Programme has handed over £120,000 to fund comms initiatives.
The garden-based devices are capable of ‘digesting’ food matter, including animal bones, into the soil.
The campaign is led by comms head Amanda Aviss.
