The free compost giveaway returns

Back by popular demand, the great compost giveaway will return to Stanborough Park on Saturday 11 May.

Compost being held

 Residents can pick up free compost between 8.30am-12.30pm from the north side car park, where compost will be given away on a first come, first served basis. Residents must bring their own bags or boxes for the compost - and a shovel. If demand is high, the amount of compost given away to each person may have to be limited.


Around 10 tonnes of compost will be provided by Agrivert, the company that processes the garden waste collected from brown bins in Welwyn Hatfield. The compost is normally spread on local farmland.


Ka Ng, Corporate Director at WHBC, said:

The compost giveaway coincides with the last day of National Compost Week, and I would encourage anyone who could make use of the compost to stop by.


I hope that the giveaway will also highlight to many residents the benefits of continuous recycling knowing that the compost there has been created from their garden waste.
