Saturday, 26 March 2022 is the National Compost Day. You can then pick up a free bag of compost at The Hague’s city farms. The municipality is giving away compost as a thank you to residents for separating their organic waste (GFT).
Residents can pick up 1 bag of compost between 10.00 and 14.00 hrs. at 1 of the 10 city farms. They can also get compost at the educational gardening complexes on the Kortenbospad and at Kornoeljestraat 117. Act quickly. This offer is good while supplies last.
Coffee grounds, apple peels, finished tulip bulbs: a large part of our waste is organic waste. It is a pity to just throw this away because it contains valuable nutrients for plants. By separating organic waste from regular household waste, it can be turned into compost. It can then be reused as ground fertiliser in parks and garden.
Separate waste or make your own compost Organic waste is collected door-to-door in various neighbourhoods in The Hague? Is organic waste not collected in your neighbourhood? Then you can take it to 1 of the waste drop-off centres at Plutostraat 1 or De Werf 11P. Or you can also compost it yourself. Read more under Separating waste: organic waste.
