Free compost at Millfields Park
Hackney Council is giving away free compost at Millfields Park on 22 March. Fifteen tonnes of it will be available - residents can turn up with bags or boxes and take as much as they like.
Millfields Park, E5 0AR
Sunday 22 March
11am – 3pm
- Pedestrians / cyclists enter from corner of Chatsworth Rd and Millfields Rd.
- Cars enter from Hillstowe St: space available for loading and unloading.
The compost is made at the London Waste eco-park from food and garden waste collected in Hackney and other north London boroughs.
Last year, thousands of Hackney residents took part in Hackney's Food Recycling Experiment. As a result, about one tonne more of food waste is being collected each day and turned into compost. The whole process takes about six weeks, so those peelings and teabags you threw away in February could be helping new plants grow in your garden, balcony or windowsill in March and April.
