Do your bit for compost week

Date: 29/03/2011           Category: Waste and Recycling

Do you want to reduce food waste and help the environment? Help and advice about home composting is available from Tuesday, 3 to Saturday 7 May, at Riverside Country Park, Gillingham.

As part of Compost Awareness Week 2011, Medway's community composting group The Medway Mulchers will be hosting the event, which will focus on community spirit and sharing knowledge.

Medway Council’s Waste Services team will be on hand with information about on waste and recycling services, while the Greenspaces team and MHS homes will showcase their work for green spaces in the community.

Countrystyle, the company that recycles Medway’s garden and food waste will be giving demonstrations throughout the week to show how the process works.

The event is open each day from 10am to 4pm and admission is free.
