The compost site in Glencoe was originally built in June, July 2005. Over the years it's had lots of use as well as bearing the brunt of the wild west coast weather. It was starting to look a little weary and even the wooden bays were beginning to compost.
Last summer (June 2012) the site was refurbished. This was made possible with an "Awards for All" grant. The bays have been moved and and completely rebuilt and the surrounding area landscaped to blend in with the community "viewpoint" garden beside it.
Glencoe community compost site had an extensive makeover last summer. This was made possible with funding from "Awards for All" and Lochaber Environmental Group. The work has been completed except for the new signs which will be going up very soon.
New layout May 2012. Compost site in January 2012
The site gives the local community the chance to compost garden material. The site is situated opposite the entrance to Glencoe Village. Screened by a stone wall behind an impressive flower bed it has a picnic site and community garden to either side. It has wonderful views looking across Loch Leven.
The site is run as a drop off site. Access can be made through the side gate which is left unlocked. Follow the labels on the receiving bays and empty your material into the appropriate one.
Nigel Wombell runs the site on a part time basis. Check out the notice board on the back of the shed up to date information and new site layout.
