Compost Giveaways


Growing enthusiasts will continue to get their fill of free loose compost as part of our regular compost giveaways, held throughout North and East London boroughs.

Residents are invited to come along with their bags, containers, and shovels.  The events run until the free compost is all gone.

The compost at these events is produced from food and garden waste collected from homes, across Barnet, Camden, Hackney, Haringey and Waltham Forest.
