Around 5,000 bags of compost are to be given away free to residents in Bridlington area next month.
E.R.Y.C.s annual compost giveaways will be held at several pick-up-points and residents are invited to go along to their local event to collect two free 15.kg bags of compost per car.
All the compost being given away has been recycled from the food and garden waste East Riding residents have put in their brown bins.
Paul Tripp, head of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We’ve been running our popular compost giveaways for many years as a ‘thank you’ to residents for their fantastic efforts in recycling their waste.
“The East Riding now has the highest recycling rate in England for the second year running and that’s down to the support of residents.
“It’s great to see the recycled waste from brown bins going to good use and returning to people’s gardens as compost.”
The bags of compost will be placed in vehicles by council staff and the giveaways end when all the bags have been handed out on a first come first served basis.
Residents are asked not to queue at the venues beforehand or they may be turned away for safety reasons.
