Eco-friendly compost launched

by | Sep 29, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Garden waste collected from householders across North Yorkshire has been recycled into compost which is now on sale across the county.

Yorwaste, along with its sister company SJB Recycling, recently launched the new compost, which is known as Yorganics.

Yorganics is a 100% recycled, peat free, locally sourced and produced compost which is accredited to the British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS 100 Standard, which recognises the production of high quality compost.

It is now on sale from a number of well-known stockists, including Sam Turners & Sons in Northallerton and Harpers in Harrogate, as well as from Yorwaste sites in Scorton, near Richmond, and York. Further stockists will be added in the coming months.

The compost is being sold in either 40-litre bags, which is idea for the garden, and Yorwaste/SJB are also providing Yorganics in bulk for the agricultural and horticultural sector.

Yorwaste?s head of sales & marketing, Matt Wilkinson said: ?We launched Yorganics at the Great Yorkshire Show recently and were absolutely delighted with the interest in it from farmers, retailers and members of the public.

?It?s biggest selling point is that it is a 100% recycled, peat free, locally-sourced and produced compost which meets high, exacting national standards for quality.

?It can be used in the garden to help vegetables and plants grow and research has shown that by introducing it into agricultural soil it will significantly increase crop yields, as well as being fully sustainable.?

Sam Turner, of Sam Turner & Sons, said: ?We are delighted to be involved with promoting a local sustainable, eco-friendly product like this.”
