Bradford to get a new composting facility

Bradford residents will soon benefit from a new composting facility thanks to a £300,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s Community Recycling and Economic Development (CRED) Programme.

The Bradford Organics Collection Scheme (BOCS) was one of only 31 projects to be awarded funding from the CRED programme. The funds will be used to establish a composting scheme in the Bradford district, which will collect kitchen and garden waste from local households.

Preparation work is under way and BOCS hopes to be able to take up residence at its new site in Shipley in November 2006 and start work on rolling the scheme out to local residents.

BOCS director and company secretary Carlton Smith said: “The environmental and social benefits are huge and we are very excited by the possibilities made available to the scheme by this funding.”
