Councillors had a sneak preview of a new green waste recycling centre last week.

The new facility will turn waste grass and leaves into usable products like mulch and top dressing soil.

Composted material will be used in parks and golf courses helping to save £42,324 a year on disposal costs. If the pilot is successful, the council will look to roll out the use of mulch and top dressing soil in public spaces.
