Thornbury Community Composting

PLEASE NOTE: Thornbury Community Composting Site is currently closed (as of April 2024), but it's hoped it will re-open soon.

About the site

Thornbury Community Composting was set up 20 years ago as part of South Gloucestershire's response to the emerging concerns about climate change. Its aims are three-fold:

  • To provide a facility for the residents of Thornbury and surrounds to compost their green garden waste
  • To assist in the recycling of garden related materials.
  • To raise awareness of the benefits of composting.
Thornbury Community Composting

The volunteer group sorts out green waste brought to the site. Suitable timber is cut for firewood and seasoned and bagged. Reusable plants and pots are put out for residents to take away.

The remaining material is shredded and turned into a high quality compost. Often there is a quantity of woodchip, suitable for mulching.

The site is self funding and relies on monetary donation to continue as a community facility. There is an honesty box on site.

Volunteers are on the site at different times during the week but regular volunteer sessions are Wednesday afternoon 1.30 - 3pm and Saturday morning 9 - 11am.

New volunteers always welcomed.
