Harrow Council – Giving you FREE compost next week!

Harrow Council will be giving away 20 tonnes of compost to residents absolutely free to mark International Compost Awareness Week, taking place between Sunday 6th and Saturday 12th May 2012

Harrow Council is encouraging its residents to “Give Back to the Earth” in line with this year’s theme to promote the making and use of compost at home.
Most people don’t realise that up to 30% of their household bin is made up of organic waste which can be turned into compost. Composting is an inexpensive, natural process that transforms your kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden.

This great giveaway will take place at the following locations:

  • Wednesday 9th May between 3pm and 7pm at Roxeth Recreation Ground, Eastcote Road car park.
  • Thursday 10thMay between 9:30am and 1pm at Kenton Recreation Ground, Carlton Avenue car park.

A composting expert from the London Community Resource Network will also be on hand to offer advice and to answer your questions. Compost will be given to residents on a first come first served basis and there will be a limited supply. Don’t forget to bring a strong bag, wheelbarrow or bucket to take your compost away in!

John Edwards, Divisional Director of Environment Services, said: “It takes very little effort and diverts a lot of waste away from landfill, so I would encourage all residents to come along and get some free compost, to transform the way they use their kitchen waste. It’s both easy to make and use, and makes Harrow a greener place to live.”
