Leaf Composting at Redmond Park

leafcompostingredmondparkRedmond Park will be getting even more brownie points on the green front when they start composting leaves from this Autumn. The plan is to install some composting bays in the fenced off area in the corner of the park. Leaves will be collected from throughout the municipal area and brought here for composting. With proper handling the leaves will break down to give a lovely, nutritious compost. Up to now all leaves collected have gone to landfill with all the expense that incurs. The local authority will also save money at the other end in that they will not have to buy in compost. The project is a joint effort between Wexford Borough Council and Wexford Tidy Towns (Biodiversity Committee).
