We are in the process of collaborating with communities before settling on our final locations. We are extremely confident that our applications for permission will be granted during this campaign, but if not successful, no funds will be transferred to the project delivery manager. Composting is a great way of cutting down the amount of household waste that has to be transported for incineration and landfill. Our project aims to build four community compost stations in different areas in Liverpool. Each station will be made available for 40 households locally who get a kitchen caddy and instructions on how to use the compost. The composts will be managed by volunteer compost champions who will be recruited from each community. We will make sure each compost is operating correctly and do any repairs necessary. The food waste that breaks down into nutritious compost will be made available for use in residents' gardens, local growing projects and to enhance local green spaces.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Composting is a great way to do your bit for the environment. Separating food waste from your general rubbish cuts down the amount that has to be transported for incineration. This, in turn, reduces transport and incineration emissions, and also reduces general waste management costs. Food waste really is not rubbish but a valuable product that breaks down into rich and nutritious compost that can be used to improve the soil in gardens and other green spaces. Communal composts are a good solution for people who live in flats, have limited outside space or don't feel confident to compost at home. When you take part in one of our communal composts, you will get a kitchen caddy with a lid and clear instructions on what to do. Compost Liverpool! is for everyone. Anyone can compost, it's not only fun but can give you an improved sense of connection to nature.
Steps to get it done:
We'd love to hear your ideas as to where these composts should be built. The final locations based on the number of suggestions received, subject to the permissions from Liverpool City Council and the landowner. Email your suggestions to email@example.com
