What happens to my garden waste?

Collected garden waste is composted into soil improver, instead of being sent to landfill.  

The garden waste you put in your brown bin for collection is taken to the composting facility at Dogsthorpe where it is bulked and taken to the Organic Recycling Ltd compost site at Crowland.

The composting site at Crowland shred the material and is then formed into large rows called 'windrows' for composting. After around 12 to 16 weeks, the composted waste is bagged up and sold as a 100% recycled soil conditioner/compost (alternative to peat based products) which can be purchased from the Householders Recycling Centre or Helpston Garden Centre.

For more information on the composting process and a list of stockists please visit Organic Recycling Ltd.
