Compost Celebration & Giveaway – Harrow
Date and time
Sunday 31 May 2015
10:00am - 3:00pm
West Harrow Recreation Ground
West London Waste will be joined by Harrow Council’s Recycling Team to host this year’s compost giveaway.
This year you can speak to compost experts, grab some free compost to take home with you from our giveaway and get more information about reducing food waste and food waste recycling.
We will have 10 tonnes of compost being delivered on the day and residents will be able to take home about 100 litres of free compost – please remember to bring your own bag and a spade.
As well as the compost giveaway, we will be answering any questions you may have about composting. Compost experts will be on hand to answer any queries you have and give information on how to start your own compost bin or heap, tips to maintain your compost and more. You’ll also be able to find out how you can buy your own reduced price compost bin.
We’re also going to be joined by 2 local groups – Shaw Trust and Harrow in Leaf who will be on hand on the day with a selection of plants available for purchase. You’ll also be able to find out more about their work in the local area.
You will also be able to sign up to the Rubbish Diet and talk to them about getting involved locally to encourage more people to put their bins on a diet or set up local schemes/groups/activities to bring your community together to improve the environment.
