Compost made from recycled garden waste will be available for free for green-fingered Three Rivers residents to pick up.

Residents eyeing to spruce up their gardens this spring will be able to collect up to two bags per household of the organic compost produced from garden waste collected from homes across Hertfordshire and donated by Severn Trent Green Power.

Emma Sheridan, Three Rivers District Council’s Associate Director of Customer and Community, said: “The council’s garden waste service is well-used and well-loved by our residents. Giving away recycled organic compost is our way of thanking residents for recycling their garden waste as well as encouraging residents to use sustainably produced local compost.”

The council’s garden compost giveaway will take place at Rickmansworth Aquadrome on Wednesday 8 May from 9:30am until compost runs out. Residents are asked to bring their own shovels and bags to fill.
