Food & Garden

Your food and garden waste is composted at our 4 In-Vessel Composters (IVC) in Greater Manchester. IVC is a system which harnesses the natural composting process, to recycle mixed garden and food waste into a compost product, which is then used in horticulture and agriculture as a soil improver and is bagged and sold as Revive Compost.

So an IVC is like a home compost bin, but on a massive scale.
