Organic compost: maximising yields and reducing need for expensive fertilisers
Trevor Thomas Torquay Allotment Holders Co-operative Association Ltd
It’s very hard to express the benefit it will make to the land and the savings that everyone that has taken advantage of your black gold will make with the reduction of artificial fertilizer and improvement in soil condition.
How organic compost is created.
Kerbside and recycling centre green waste is delivered to our sites across Devon
Our high-speed shredder breaks down the material and forms it into windrows
The compost is then managed to maturity over a 12-16 week period.
It’s turned regularly to regulate the internal heat
At the end of the process, the material is screened to produce the final product
Samples are regularly sent off to a laboratory to check levels of nutrients
After weeks of careful management, it has transformed into a PAS100 soil conditioner
Sustainable compost for your farmland.
Sustainable Trustworthy. Compliant.
One planet. One chance. Our vision is to maximise the recycling and recovery of resources and be market-leading in our commitment to sustainability.
For the last 30 years, we’ve been making recycling easy meaning you can achieve your sustainability goals while continuing to do what you do best. Each year we grow, but we stay true to our roots, looking after the businesses that make Devon the place it is.
Connecting with local communities and educating with our expert knowledge is a key practice at Coastal to secure a more sustainable future for all. As much as 80% of the things that go into general waste bins could be recycled. That waste is a resource in the wrong place but together we can get it right.
