Compost In The Community

Contributing in tangible ways to our local community is an important aspect of our ethos at NWP and, as such, we are currently supporting an ever-expanding number of local community and voluntary projects, through the provision of compost to help improve green spaces and promote the development of the natural environment as a means of improving mental well-being.  We believe that people need to see the tangible benefits of effective household recycling flowing back into their communities to further encourage the sorts of behavioural changes that can lead to even more material being reused or recycled in the future, as we collectively strive to combat the current climate emergency.
