Free Compost from your green waste - Thursday 22 May
Local residents can reap the rewards of food and green waste recycling by collecting free compost made from the waste collected from green bins.
Lancaster City Council will be at Sainsbury's supermarket on Lancaster Road in Morecambe and everyone is welcome to come along and fill up their bags. Compost will be limited to two bags per household and people are asked to bring their own bags, and arrive early to avoid disappointment.
The compost is made from the food and garden waste that people recycle in their green bins, and is suitable for all types of plants. It is produced by Global Renewables, who operate two waste processing facilities on behalf of Lancashire County Council and Lancaster City Council (and who deserve a medal, if my bin is anything to go by).
And while you're out, don't forget to go and cast your vote in the Euro-parliamentary elections.
To find out what can and can’t be recycled in your green bin, visit www.lancaster.gov.uk/bins
If you have not received a food waste caddy please phone Lancaster City Council customer services on 01524 582491.
