Bisley Community Compost Scheme (BCCS)

BisleBCCS-logoy Community Compost Scheme, located on the same site as Bisley Chestergate Allotments, is a voluntary run scheme opened in November 2005. It is the first community composting scheme in the Stroud District and is the longest running community composting scheme in Gloucestershire.

Members of the scheme bring their garden waste to the composting site. Volunteers manage the scheme, with help from some paid local labour. Once composted, the product is offered back to its members, and allotment holders, to be used in their gardens and allotments, thereby returning valuable nutrients to the soil, and helping sequester carbon.
