Free compost giveaway in Beverley in May

The popular free compost giveaways run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council are to be held in May.

Nine giveaway events are to be held across the East Riding from 13th-27th May, where 55 tonnes of compost – around 4,500 bags – will be given away.

All of the compost has been recycled from the garden and food waste that residents have placed in their brown bins.

Residents are invited to drive along to their nearest event, where they can claim two free 15 kilogram bags of compost.

The bags will be placed in their car boots for them.

The giveaways follow successful events held in May and September last year, which were well-supported by residents.

The giveaways are expected to return this September.

Brown bins can take grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, small branches, leaves, flowers and weeds, all cooked and uncooked food, peelings, plate scrapings, bones, bread, meat, eggshells and small amounts of soups, sauces and gravies.

All brown bin contents get recycled into compost by the Biowise plant in Willerby – where all the giveaway compost comes from.

Free compost will be given away at the following events:

Saturday 13 May, 10am – Beverley, Beverley council depot, Annie Reed Road,

Monday 15 May, 4.30 pm – Preston, Holderness Academy and Sixth Form College,

Tuesday 16 May, 4pm – Driffield, Driffield Showground, Kelleythorpe

Wednesday 17 May, 4pm – Goole, West Park

Thursday 18 May, 4pm – Withernsea, Pavilion Car Park, Station Road

Tuesday 23 May, 5pm – Pocklington, Wolds Gliding Club, Hodsow Lane, YO42 1NP

Residents are asked not to queue at the venues beforehand or they may be turned away for safety reasons.

The compost is best used as a soil improver.
