Somerset’s garden waste is composted within the county and turned into Revive soil conditioner



Somerset’s garden waste is composted within the county and turned into Revive soil conditioner by our contractor Biffa.

Biffa produces two grades (0-15mm & 0-30mm) that are perfect for commercial and domestic use and meet the highest quality standards.

 You can buy and collect 40-litre bags from all Somerset recycling sites; £4.25 each or three for £10.70. Payment accepted on Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, Visa Electron and Diners Club, including contactless cards. No delivery service for 40-litre bags.

The benefits of using Revive green waste compost in your garden include:

  • Provides a good source of natural and valuable plant nutrients and trace elements; plus, a slight liming effect due to its alkaline pH.
  • Adds valuable organic matter and thus improves soil fertility
    Improves soil workability and improves soil tilth, thus reducing ploughing / cultivation / fuel costs, particularly in clay soils
  • Improved moisture retention in light soils and drainage in clay soils
  • In mulching applications, reduces weed seed germination and also facilitates weeding activities
  • Increases productivity and yields
  • Increases soil microbiology by adding important microbes
  • Adds essential carbon to the soil profile
