What happens to my garden waste?

Our garden waste is treated at a licensed composting facility. It is processed into compost in long heaps called windrows. The finished product meets the UK standards (PAS100) and can be used as compost on farms (30mm) and in gardens (10mm).The garden version, re3grow, is available for residents to purchase during spring and summer months at re3 recycling centres.
