More than 500 people turned out to dig in – at a St Helens Council-organised compost giveaway at Clock Face Colliery.
The event marked the end of International Compost Awareness Week (6 -12 May). Visitors were also given the chance to obtain additional or replacement recycling containers.
The compost was created from green waste collected throughout the borough through St Helens Council’s green bin scheme.
For further recycling advice call (01744) 676789 or visit www.sthelens.gov.uk.
