Compost giveaways for Uttlesford residents

GREEN fingered Uttlesford residents can get their hands on free compost this weekend.

Uttlesford District Council’s 2011 compost giveaway takes place over two weekends in May.

The soil improver will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents will need to bring their own bags to take the compost away.

Waste and recycling officer Catherine Aukland said: “There is always a high demand for the compost so please make sure you get to a collection point in plenty of time.”

All sites will run from 9am to 3pm, or until supplies run out.

The dates and locations are:

Saturday May 21 – Great Dunmow (Chequers Lane Car Park)
