Thornbury Community Composting

We are currently open on Saturday mornings 9-11am for wood sales and volunteering.

We are also open Wednesday afternoon 1.30-3pm.

We are currently open for donations Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 9am-3pm.

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.

Social distancing rules apply when visiting the 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.
