Have some free compost!

From the start of May, green-fingered people in West Oxfordshire can get their hands on free compost.

Over 150 bags of recycled compost will be given away by West Oxfordshire District Council at The Leys, Witney on Friday 1 May from 11am until 2pm.

The compost will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis. District residents will be able to take up to three bags home to use on their gardens.

The compost is being supplied by Chipping Norton firm Agrivert Ltd, which processes garden waste from homes across West Oxfordshire.

Last year, WODC collected over 10,000 tonnes of garden waste from homes across the district.

On 1 May, recycling officers will also be offering residents free food waste bins and caddies, kitchen caddy liners, recycling box nets and “Love Food Hate Waste” recipe books.

Discounted home composting bins will also be available to buy for half price, at a cost of £10.

A full list of items that can go in garden waste bins, and other recycling/waste bins, is available here, or by calling 01993 861000.

People can also register for free green waste collections online or by calling this number.
