Can't wait!
I'm glad they are asking for proof of address though. You don't want compost in the wrong hands.

At the last giveaway at this depot the traffic was horrendous so why do it right in the rush hour. You have been warned!

Yes it would be better to do this from somewhere we better access, like Waterdale on a Sunday morning.

Sounds like a solid down to earth sensible composting idea.

But it is GREEN! 100 V8 4x4's in a traffic jam is a tiny price for the planet to pay for the chance of a bag of grot in which you could grow a daffodil or something!
I should add the bag it comes in is made of plastic. From a factory in China. Which is unlikely to meet any emission or pollution standards known to man. And the bag is printed with the company logo, made from inks in a factory in China. Which is unlikely to meet any emission or pollution standards known to man. The bags are then shipped on a huge container ship made by a factory in China, which is unlikely to meet any emission or pollution standards known to man.

But hey, free compost! Go Team Planet Save!
