TO mark Compost Awareness Week this week, re3 recycling has launched its own branded compost.

The compost, which closes the loop for garden waste being collected or deposited in Bracknell, Wokingham and Reading, can be purchased at the recycling centres in Longshot lane, Bracknell, and Smallmead in Reading from the Meet and Greet teams.

The compost is made in the UK, from recycled garden waste, including material from the re3 area. re3grow compost conforms to BSI PAS 100 and the Compost Quality Protocol to provide essential nutrients for healthy plant growth.

Cllr Mrs Dorothy Hayes MBE, Bracknell Forest’s Executive Member for Environment and Chairman of the Joint Waste Disposal Board says: “I am thrilled that re3grow compost is now on sale and I am certain it will be very popular. This product was possible thanks to the strong partnership of the Councils and FCC Environment and is the outcome of fantastic efforts by residents of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs who recycle garden waste either via kerbside or at the local recycling sites. The process of composting is one of the best examples of closed loop recycling and it’s great to see the garden waste from the re3 area is going full circle and back into residents’ gardens as a quality compost.”
