WBC Soil Conditioner Giveaway Event 16 and 17 March

Veolia and West Berkshire Council soil conditioner giveaway event
West Berkshire Council is teaming up with Veolia for the fourth time to provide residents with an exciting giveaway – FREE soil conditioner!
Mark your calendars for Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 March, between 10:00am and 4:00pm where you will be able to swing by our Padworth Waste Management Facility at Padworth Lane, RG7 4JF, and grab some locally produced soil conditioner.
Wondering what makes this soil conditioner special? It’s created right here at Padworth, using the food and garden waste we collect from you and other households in the district.
For the giveaway weekend, no appointment is needed, just show up! But do bring along an ID card or a recent utility bill to prove you’re a West Berkshire resident. Please bring your own bags or boxes so you can easily carry and load the bagged or boxed soil conditioner into your car – no direct loading into vehicles for health and safety reasons.
This is a free event, and some queues are likely during peak times. Please be patient when you arrive as we aim to allow as many people as possible to collect the soil. We’ll be restocking throughout the day, so there’s no rush to arrive early. Also, let’s be fair – we ask residents to take a reasonable amount to make sure everyone gets a chance to enjoy this fantastic offer.

Please note there will be vehicle restrictions in place. Vehicles listed as prohibited in the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) user guide (see page 12) will not be allowed. No commercial vehicles will be admitted – this is for householders only. Residents must take necessary precautions for carrying the soil conditioner safely to their vehicle. The event organisers accept no liability for any injuries or damage that may be sustained by residents loading their vehicles with the materials. Residents wishing to visit the household waste recycling centre must still book an appointment.
