Garden waste collected from Three Rivers homes has gone full circle and is now being made available as organic compost free to local gardeners.
Residents can collect up to two bags per household of the organic compost, produced from garden waste collected from homes across Hertfordshire and donated by Severn Trent Green Power.
The annual compost giveaway is organised as a way of thanking people for recycling their garden waste, while also encouraging gardening enthusiasts to use sustainably produced local compost.
Ray Figg, Three Rivers District Council’s head of community services, said: “This is an amazing thing to see happening, all those times you have filled your garden waste bins over the summer and autumn months and seen it taken away is now being rewarded with lovely organic compost for your garden. Truly, this is the circle of garden life in action. Come along and get your free bags and nourish your garden this spring.”
Three Rivers District Council’s garden compost giveaway will take place at Rickmansworth Aquadrome from 9.30am on Wednesday, May 10, until compost runs out. Residents must bring their own bags to fill.
