From cuttings to compost: watch Woodhorn's new green waste recycling video

Local farming enterprise launches new green waste recycling video

The Woodhorn Group in Chichester has launched a new green waste recycling video, demonstrating the process in which local garden waste is turned into nutrient rich
soil conditioners and compost.
The video takes viewers through the 14 week composting production cycle, showing each
carefully controlled stage of the journey from the waste bin collection right the way through to the final product being delivered to their door.
The Woodhorn Group receive over 75,000 tons of local green waste each year at their sites
in Tangmere and Runcton, which is then used to create their Earth Cycle range of high
quality peat free compost and soil conditioning products.
“Compost is a vital part of a healthy garden, it is an eco-friendly way to inject much needed nutrients back into the ground aiding plant growth and improving soil structure,” explains Mike Jupp, Sales and Marketing Manager at The Woodhorn Group. “Recycling green waste also reduces the quantity of waste being directed into our landfills, resulting in a reduction of toxic gases that get released into the atmosphere.”
Managing Director of The Woodhorn Group, John Pitts, comments: “Here at The Woodhorn
Group we are passionate about the environment and are very proud to be able to share our
new video with everyone. We hope that it not only educates the local community about
what happens to green waste and what we do here at our composting site, but also inspires
them to think about what they do with their own garden waste.”
