Compost giveaway in Pocklington

A volunteer recycling group, which collects garden waste on the Sherbuttgate estate in Pocklington is to give away compost to residents as it prepares to begin its fortnightly collections once again.

The Greengrass Recycling group will be at the Southfield Court car park on the Sherbuttgate Estate between 3pm and 5pm on Friday 26 April to giveaway compost made during their recycling drives in previous years. Three days later on April 29 the group will recommence their fortnightly waste collections, issuing green bags to householders to put their garden waste in.

Last year the group collected 38 tonnes of garden waste and the compost giveaway on 26 April is a great way of showing recycling in action to residents.

Although no charge will be made for the compost, donations to keep the group going are very much appreciated.
