SCARBOROUGH Borough Council is offering Whitby and district residents their old organic waste back for free, in the form of soil improver.
In partnership with Yorwaste the give away will see more than 60 tonnes of soil improver distributed across the borough.
Harry Briggs, recycling and waste enforcement unit at SBC, said: “We’ll be at our usual sites and ready with the best value soil improver for miles around.
“We always look forward to these events as we are giving back to the community soil improver that they have produced from their own gardens.
“These events are always very popular, therefore we urge residents to get there quickly as the soil improver will be given out on a first-come, first- served basis.
“This event is a great way for us to say thank you to residents for their keen participation in the garden waste collection service and the recycling scheme as a whole.”
To collect some soil improver all residents need to take along is a maximum of two sturdy bags or containers per household to the event, which will be held at Whitby’s West Cliff car park on Thursday 20 October between 3.30pm and 6pm.
Residents will also be able to purchase a brown garden waste bin at any of the events for £12.50, if they take them away on the day, or £15, if they would like the bin delivered.
