Free compost scheme for residents who recycle

1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is encouraging residents to recycle items at Household Recycling Centres and in turn receive one free bag of garden compost.

This initiative during Compost Awareness Week will begin on Wednesday 8th May at all 11 recycling centres in the area as a way of acknowledging residents’ continued participation in the brown bin bio-waste recycling scheme and green waste collection at household recycling centres.

All of the organic materials collected in our brown bins at home or at the recycling centres are processed into compost as an example of the circular economy in action.

The compost is a peat free, natural growing product, which provides all varieties of plants with the necessary nutrients for growth.

Residents are encouraged to recycle as much of their household waste as possible using their blue bin, brown bin and local recycling centre.

In 2018, over 15,500 tonnes of council collected organic material was converted into compost.

The promotion will continue whilst stocks last.

For more information or advice on how to maximise recycling at home, please contact a member of the Environmental Resource Officer team on 028 2766 0248 or email [email protected]
