Armed with spades, trowels, buckets and bags, the students worked really hard and made quick work of the huge pile, which they then transported to Ashley School.
Fiona Lawrenson, teacher at Ashley School said: “We are extremely grateful to Veolia for donating such a huge amount of compost. It will allow us to make huge environmental improvements around the grounds at Ashley. Students have already made a great start with the creation of a Remembrance Garden and the creation of flower borders.”
Garden waste from Halton’s kerbside collection is delivered to Haddocks Wood composting facility. Once the material has been processed it is bagged into various Pro-Grow products, including a rich peat free soil conditioner, which are available for sale from Haddocks Wood composting facility, Warrington Road, Runcorn, WA7 1QH.
The facility also produces 20mm soil improver, like Ashley School received, which can be made available to community groups and projects, if you would like to make an application for a donation contact Veolia on 0151 651 3200.
