South Hams DC has suspended all garden waste collections from Monday 16 August for a minimum of four weeks, see: https://www.southhams.gov.uk/waste-suspension-news.
The Marsh – Sustainable South Brent’s Community Compost Site on Exeter Road (adjacent to the South West Water site) is open on Sundays from 10am to 1pm and will welcome your garden waste and turn it into compost.
Please bring your garden waste by barrow or car (Brown bins are accepted but can be very hard to empty and The Marsh volunteers may not be able to assist)
- Soft green waste material you can cut with mower or clippers (this soft waste is particularly appreciated for compost-making!)
- Twiggy brushwood material that can be cut with loppers, or hedge trimmings cut with shears or a power tool
We don’t accept:
- Stumps, vines, bamboo, Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam
- Food/kitchen waste, cooked or uncooked e.g. unwanted fruit and vegetables, peelings, left-overs, so please make sure your compost is not contaminated with any of these.
Compost made from garden waste may be available for collection from The Marsh at £1 per 10kg bag
