Each year in May we give away around 5,000 15kg bags of compost created from brown bin waste.
Dates and locations of these events are available in the table below.
We also advertise the events in local newspapers, our own newsletter, 'Your East Riding', which will be delivered to your home, and our Facebook and Twitter sites.
If you are an East Riding resident, you just need to turn up in your vehicle at one of our events, and we will put two free bags of compost in it for you to take home and use in your garden.
The giveaways are on a first-come, first-served basis and will end when all the compost bags have been given away.
Please note: do not arrive at the event early to queue, as you may cause disruption to the local roads, and you will be turned away for safety reasons.
