We, the undersigned, petition the Council to KEEP OUR SHIREWAY COMMUNITY COMPOSTING CENTRE OPEN

More details from petitioner:

We oppose the Council's plans to shut our local Community Composting Centre at Shireway because:

  • This centre encourages good recycling practices thus helping to reduce overall waste
  • It is free of charge thus supporting low income families who cannot afford to enrol in the green bin scheme 
  • Unlike the Sort-it Centre, it is open 24 hours a day, making it  easily accessible particularly for full time employees 
  • It has dual use as local people can collect soil, chippings or similar for their gardens as well as drop off green waste
  • Without it, queues and waiting times at the local Sort-it Centre would increase dramatically thus discouraging recycling and increasing waste.


Careful consideration should also be given on whether to close the other local Community Composting Centres who will face similar issues at Thornbury and Hawkesbury Upton!
