The Marsh: SSB’s composting site: adjacent the South West Water site on Exeter Road is open on Sunday mornings from 10am-1pm both to leave garden waste, and to buy compost. Following the cessation of SHDC’s kerbside brown bin collection in October, bring your garden waste to the Marsh. We still need MORE green waste e.g. grass cuttings, dead flowers etc., and LESS wood! Please don’t bring stumps, vines, bamboo, Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam, food/kitchen waste, cooked or uncooked e.g. unwanted fruit and vegetables, peelings, left-overs. Three vehicles will be allowed on site at one time plus maximum of two allowed to stack in the entrance layby (No parking on the main road is permitted while waiting for entry). Only limited help is available from volunteers to unload your garden waste or carry bags of compost to your car. If you collect compost, please place £1 per 10kg bag donation in the box. Full Information on the project can be seen at: www.ssb.org.uk/projects/the-marsh-community-compost-and-re-use-centre/.
