Goole’s West Park will be hosting one of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s free compost giveaway events.
To be held on Wednesday, May 11 at 4pm, this is just one of the eight giveaway events that will be held in total across the area between Monday, May 9 and Saturday, May 21. Around 5,000 bags of compost, which will be made directly from the garden and food waste which East Riding residents recycle in their brown bins, will be handed out for free to local residents.
Cllr Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: “Compost giveaways are really important because they are the council’s way of giving back to residents and thanking them for continuing to recycle. “The East Riding is still one of the top areas in the country for recycling and that’s down to the fantastic efforts of residents.” For more information about the other giveaway events and where they are, go to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s website.
