Free compost at the environmental center (Milieustraat)

Thursday 12 April 2018

April is compost month. This means that you can collect compost for free this whole month at the environmental center (Milieustraat).


You have to load the compost yourself, so do not forget to take your shovel with you. You may bring up to one full trailer at a time. Compost is a soil conditioner that restores the natural balance in the soil. In the Netherlands, we collect a total of approximately 1.3 million tonnes of GFT waste per year. We process this into compost and thus save waste processing costs and the environment.

The environmental center (Milieustraat) is located at Gerstdijk 1 in Helmond. The opening hours are:

  • Monday to Friday: 1 pm - 5 pm
  • Saturday: 8.30 am - 4 pm
