Stokes Wood Composting site

The Stokes Wood composting demonstration site   has now been Registered for:

  • T23: Aerobic composting and associated prior treatment,
  • T26: Treatment of kitchen waste in a wormery,
  • U11: Spreading waste to benefit non-agricultural land and
  • U12: Using mulch.

We started three  of the bins, a Hotbin and 220 litre and 330 litre  bins, available from Get Composting under the Leicestershire and Leicester City Council scheme, this morning using spout stalks and leeks left in one of the Reception bins (photo)  by plot-holders together with a little catering waste from the café.

We still have more bins to add to the site in the months before it is officially opened as part of Compost Awareness Week.

Visitors are welcome to drop by on Wednesday mornings when the café is open for drinks and breakfasts
