A SCHOOL is urging people to get involved with its community composting scheme to helps its plants and garden areas.

Hertford Junior School is recycling its food waste and making its own compost as part of the Hollingreen project between the school, Brighton and Hove City Council and the city's Food Partnership. Families living in the Hollingdean area of Brighton are being invited to join the scheme by dropping off their food waste in compost bins in the school grounds in Lynchet Close. Brighton.

Those interested in taking part can sign up at the school and will be given a small recycling caddy to store their waste before returning it to the school.

Worms will also be placed in the large bins to speed up the composting process.

Tony Pearce, eco co-ordinator at the school, said: “The children are very keen on the idea and it has already generated a lot of interest locally.”
