Repair or adapt

The best environmental choice is to repair, restore or adapt a product you already have. You may need professional help but it could still be cheaper than something new.

Community Compost Project

Northamptonshire County Council and Amey have launched a scheme to encourage community groups and schools to compost. Amey, formerly Enterprise, the company that runs Northamptonshire’s Recycling Centres, has donated 5 tonnes of top quality peat free, recycled compost to the Community Composting Project run by the waste management team at County Hall.

The compost is being given out to Pocket Parks, Schools and Allotment Groups all over the county. If you represent a group and would like to claim 5 free bags of compost please contact us. Limited supplies are available.

A number of Pocket Parks have already claimed 100kg of top quality compost for various small projects.

Secretary to St Edmunds Residents Association, Jim Wishart said:

“The compost will be used in several guerrilla gardens in our residential area. The focus will be the St Edmunds Churchyard which is opposite the old St Edmunds Hospital site on the Wellingborough Road.” 

Syresham Pocket Park, Great Billing Pocket Park, Hackleton Pocket Park, Warmington Pocket Parks and Boddington Jubilee Field have all received free compost.
