Upper Up Composting Facility - UPDATE

posted 6 Sep 2019, 23:48 by Robert Cowley   [ updated 6 Sep 2019, 23:48 ]

Due to the breakdown of the shredding machine, materials acceptable at this site will be severely limited until further notice.


The following are now acceptable:

soft green stuff including grass cuttings, soft weeds,

short non-woody hedge cuttings, vegetable tops and leaves, and any green stuff without hard or woody stems.

 We cannot accept any woody material of over 5mm thickness.

 

The shredding machine was severely damaged when a garden implement left in woody material was inadvertently fed into the unit causing very expensive damage. Repairs will not be completed for some time so the above restrictions will remain in place until further notice.

 

Apologies for any inconvenience.
