Battling against the elements!

Wow it's been wet!

The rain hasn't dampened our spirits here and our production team have continued to produce our quality soil improver.

Stockpiles have coped well with the downpours and deliveries are continuing throughout this wet spell.

If you're looking for a quality product to introduce to your garden now that the rain has eased dont hesitate to get in touch.

TLC being used in Erewash

We are really pleased that Erewash Borough Council have chosen to use our soil improver as part of their flower bed improvements at Long Eaton Library. The Jubilee planting in Erewash is fabulous and we hope our soil improver will help the bedding plants at the library thrive.

Welcome to The Local Compost website.

We produce a fully certified, 100% recycled, peat free soil improver, using green waste collected by the local authorities in our area.

Our product is available to buy from our site in Ilkeston or we can arrange delivery in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire areas.

We pride ourselves on our green credentials and are keen to support local community initiatives that enable us to return this valuable, organic compost back to local land.
