WINFORD PARISH COUNCIL
Community Composting Site Reopening
Following the latest Government announcement proposing easing of restrictions from 4th July, it has been decided to reopen the compost site on the following Wednesday, 8th July. Opening hours will be as before: between the hours of 2pm and 5pm on Wednesdays and 10am and 1pm on Saturdays. Please do be sensible and if possible keep hold of your green waste a little longer to avoid long queues on the first week of reopening.
Obviously, it will be the responsibility of people using the site to deposit their green waste to continue to observe appropriate social distancing.
Winford Parish Council Compost Site
Low cost or even free good quality compost
Did you know that Winford Parish Council makes its own compost, available at a very reasonable cost of £1.25 a bag or £10 for 10 bags. Lorry and trailer loads can also be collected from the site free of charge if taken via a local weighbridge. For details please see below.
The Parish Council compost site is located on Kingston Lane, High Winford, opposite the Cricket Club. It is open to local residents (private individuals) ONLY between the hours of 2pm and 5pm on Wednesdays and 10am and 1pm on Saturdays for the deposit of green garden waste. Contractors are NOT permitted to use the site to deposit waste, but are welcome to obtain the compost – see details of how below.
The site has been running successfully for fifteen years, managed and maintained by the Parish Council and volunteers. The site has been inspected and approved by the Environment Agency.
The green garden waste is deposited by local residents in the Parish and surrounding villages. The stacked material is inspected and foreign matter extracted, and then professionally shredded and allowed to mature. It is then screened professionally and matured into good quality compost.
