Compost Day for Stevenage residents

27 Apr 2015

Stevenage Borough Council is offering you the opportunity to get your hands dirty planting sunflowers, making ‘rot pots’ and collecting free compost at our Compost Day event on Saturday 9 May.

The event, from 10am to 1pm at Hampson Park, is a chance for Stevenage families to come down and learn more about home composting, planting seeds for their garden and to collect some free compostable liners, as well as filling their bags with compost made from the waste collected from their brown bins. 

Stevenage Borough Council’s Strategic Director Peter Bandy said, “Bring the family down, plant your own sunflowers, or just stock up on compost for your garden. We’ll have everything you need to help your garden flourish this summer.” 

Residents interested in taking away compost will need to bring their own shovels and bags as the compost is available loose.
