Free compost in Dungiven and Limavady Recycling Centres

Free compost in Dungiven and Limavady Recycling Centres

Fri, April 20, 2018

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is offering free compost to any resident who visits either Limavady or Dungiven Household Recycling Centres.

This is Council’s way of acknowledging residents’ continued participation in the brown bin bio-waste recycling scheme and the recycling centre green waste collection.

Spring not only encourages growth in grass and plants but also inspires many of us to get into our gardens to restore some order.

All of the materials collected in our brown bins and at the recycling centres are processed into compost.

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

In order to distribute the compost fairly, supplies will be limited to the equivalent of one green garden bag each. Residents can bring their own bags to collect the material if they wish.

Residents presented almost 9,000 tonnes of green garden materials as waste last year. Council are now actively closing the resource loop and returning the materials collected to residents in the form of a useful resource.

The compost will be available at both sites until Friday 18th May.

International Compost Awareness Week takes place from 6th- 12th May. This worldwide initiative aims to educate people on the environmental benefits of compost as a soil improver.

It is hoped this increased awareness encourages residents in the Causeway Coast and Glens area to participate in the important recycling activity.
