Compost to go

compost sack

We're sorry. Compost is not currently available for collection at the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Western Road, Kilmarnock due to the ongoing works within the depot.

All green garden waste collected from households via our kerbside collections as well as the green garden waste deposited at Recycling Centres in East Ayrshire is used to produce a compost product which meets the Association for Organics Recycling's mark of approval - PAS 100 accreditation.

Where to collect compost

Our Compost To Go scheme enables East Ayrshire residents to collect supplies of this compost from the Recycling Centres at Western Road, Kilmarnock and at Garlaff near Cumnock, free of charge.

East Ayrshire Council's compost sacks must be used when collecting compost.
