Happy first anniversary to Yorganics bagged Garden Compost, launched at the Great Yorkshire Show last year.
What’s the big deal with Yorganics? It’s the 100% recycled, peat free, locally sourced compost produced in North and West Yorkshire from the garden waste of thousands of households. It’s collected and recycled into a high quality compost that meets the British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS100 standard and it’s ideal for both domestic, horticultural and agricultural uses.
Whilst autumn and spring are traditionally the seasons to treat your garden to a compost treatment, actually any time of year is fine to enrich, revitalise and restore the natural properties within the soil that have been lost. Yorganics bagged compost is available to buy from a network of retailers and, in North Yorkshire, from most Household Waste Recycling Centres.
During the main growing season (March to October), Yorganics handle over 150,000 tonnes of green waste. The material is collected from households and taken to dedicated composting facilities where it is shredded and stored in batches, known as windrows. Over the next 11 weeks, the compost is turned regularly using mechanical plant until it enters a stabilisation process. At the end of the composting process the product is then put through a large rotary drum that screens and separates larger material, and the compost is sorted into two grades – 30mm and 10mm. It is then ready to be bagged, or sold in bulk, to be used by farmers in agriculture, horticulturists or by householders in their gardens.
