Composting Code

Please try and compost as much as possible on your own plot. If you need advice about building a compost bin then feel free speak to anyone of us who already has a bin. We will be delighted to help you. If you have no space in the compost bin on your plot please take any excess plant material away for disposal

What to put in your compost bin

  • Soft green waste such as plants and grass cuttings
  • Shredded paper
  • Shredded cardboard
  • Straw
  • Comfrey - a compost activator
  • Stinging nettles

What NOT to put in your compost bin

Invasive weeds like couch grass and convolvulous. Invasive weeds can be either put in a black bag and taken to the tip or put in a water container on your plot, they will rot after a few months

Surplus plants

Can be taken from or left by the notice board


These are acceptable for tougher materials provided you follow the code posted on the Notice Board. Also please show consideration for your fellow plot holders and do not light smoky bonfires leaving the smoke to drift over other people. Please do not bring materials from home as this constitutes fly tipping
