    You could try https://www.freecycle.org/browse/UK
    (I know it doesn't answer your specific problem, but it would probably get rid of the composter)

    I am a big fan of Freecycle. 8 years later my AEG washer, dryer and fridge at my Yorkshire pad are still going strong, courtesy of a lady in York who was remodeling her kitchen.

    Another +1 for FreeCycle, apart from the shysters who want the goods delivered to them, WTF!

    I've had people who are clearly market traders turn up at the house via Freecycle. I know I shouldn't care, but it just seems to go against the spirit of it.

    That's why I tend to wait a while before accepting someone's offer.

    I've got rid of things like a garden fork that was missing one of the tines and empty pots etc.

    I've had random people as I have given anything from pot plants to a ladder.

    Got rid of a garden broom on Freecycle this morning. Always put a note on things if I leave them out.

    Can't find anyone who wants my old Lexmark printer unfortunately and I can't throw him away, he's my friend!

    And he talks to you so nicely.

    I've got at least 3, none of which have any ink left.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    lots of people will want them for parts if making a CNC etc.

    Indeed. "Printing started", "Please load paper in the autosheet feeder", "Printing complete", "Ink is low" etc. in his US accent. Used to print things just for the companionship. Otherwise so nice and quiet. Canon I replaced him with sounds like a cannon, clatter clatter, bang.
