Revive soil conditioner compost launched in West Sussex

Posted on 13 May 2015

Viridor launched its newly branded, locally produced, soil conditioner compost ‘Revive’ at all of West Sussex County Council’s 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) in partnership with West Sussex County Council with resounding results. As part of National Compost Awareness Week the new branding for the brightly packaged Revive has been a big hit with West Sussex residents.

Revive, the trade name for Viridor’s certified quality soil conditioner compost is made locally from composted West Sussex green garden waste and is part of Viridor’s commitment to transform waste into high quality products. The Revive brand meets the highest quality standard in its market, including the Compost Quality Protocol (CQP) and the BSI PAS 100 standard, the leading industry accreditation for compost quality, ensuring a safe and consistent product to deliver outstanding results.

Viridor worked with polyethylene products manufacturer IG Industries to develop its user friendly 40-litre form-fill-seal sack which is made from 100micron gauge polypropylene and uses less plastic than the previous pre-formed pillow case style bags, making the new sack design easier to handle. The new bags contain user instructions and are ideal for use in gardens and other horticultural areas. Revive is available for sale at all Household Waste Recycling Sites for £4 per 40 litre bag or 3 bags for £10.

Eki Evbuomwan Viridor’s Education and Customer Relations Manager in West Sussex commented, “People are pretty keen on gardening in West Sussex and the new-look Revive is flying out of West Sussex County Council’s 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites. Over the course of National Compost Awareness Week we have sold 450 bags of Revive made from 210 tonnes of green garden waste.

For those residents that also enjoy composting at home, West Sussex County Council offers discounted compost bins, a handy A-Z guide of what to add and what to leave out plus on-line advice from expert blogger ‘Ask Annie’ as well as from fellow composters:
