In Hampshire, green garden waste whether collected from homes or taken to Household Waste Recycling Centres across the county is recycled locally into Pro-Grow. Pro-Grow is a certified organic, peat-free soil conditioner which is great for letting your garden grow.
Over six months, Hampshire’s garden waste is transformed at Veolia’s composting sites using a completely natural process. Only rainwater is added, but weeds, seeds and any pesticides are completely destroyed.
Choosing a peat-free, locally produced compost instead of the alternatives is a great choice for the environment. Collected, recycled and used locally, far less miles are needed to transport the material. Peat is effectively a non-renewable resource, so its extraction is unsustainable, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and damages rare habitats and archaeology.
Composting Manager for Veolia Environmental Services in Hampshire, Ed Watson, said: “As a product which can be made locally in Hampshire, Pro-Grow is environmentally beneficial and is derived from an entirely renewable source.” Telephone 0800 072 2369 or email [email protected] to find out more or order some Pro-Grow.
