This definietly deserves a mention! I’ve been making enquiries recently with local authorities about what happens to the material that the public send away for composting. In Cambrideshire they have an amazing scheme!

Donarbon makes the soil improver they produce through our in-vessel composting system available for the public to collect free of charge at their 3 main sites in Cambridgeshire. These sites are:

Near the main entrance to the Waterbeach Waste Management Park
At the Alconbury Waste Transfer Station
At the March Waste Transfer Station

You will need to take your own spade or shovel and sacks or a small trailer. The free soil improver is available at the following times:

At Waterbeach from 8 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and 8 am to 1 pm Saturday.
At the Alconbury and March Waste Transfer Stations from 8 am to 4pm Monday to Friday.
For more information about the free compost visit the Donarbon Site

I’m really impressed by this scheme! It’s a great way for people to get free soil conditioning compost!

Perth and Kinross Council also offer free compost!

Please get in touch if your local council does something similar!
