Eco Station attendant Chris Semple hoists a 30 litre bag of Second Nature compost at the Coronation Eco Station.
“Customers love it,” states Coronation Eco Station Foreman Hal Whitford referring to the bagged Second Nature compost available at all three Eco Stations. In fact, customers like the 30 litre bags of compost, which are available for $6 apiece, so much that the Eco Stations are having a hard time keeping the material in stock!
“Some customers will purchase 10 or 15 bags at a time and use it to top dress their lawns or in their flower beds,” says Hal.
This is the second year the Eco Stations have carried the Second Nature compost in the new, stylish bags. The Second Nature compost is produced at the EWMC and is made up of a mixture of residential organic waste and biosolids. The compost is also available in bulk at many local retail outlets.
