Revive Arrives: GM Compost now available!

In case you haven't already heard, residents of Greater Manchester can now buy local compost produced from our very own food and garden household waste!

'Revive' is a blended multi-purpose peat-free compost, with up to 80% of the ingredients coming straight out of GM residents' food and waste bins! After being collected from our homes, the waste goes through a large-scale but simple composting process called In Vessel Composting (IVC for short) in one of four facilities across GM, taking just six weeks to be transformed into a high quality compost ready to go straight into your back garden to bring your azaleas back to life.

With up to half of GM's household waste being compostable, IVC has the potential to divert a huge portion of waste away from landfill and put it to use as a new resource. If you fancy learning a bit more about how IVC works, check out the educational video below from Recycle for Greater Manchester.






Revive is available for residents to buy at a very competitive price from nine locations across GM. For more information click here.


EMERGE provides environmental education and advice on resource management, waste composition and sustainable procurement issues. 

We are now working in partnership with Cooler to deliver ‘Carbon Literacy’ trainings for businesses across Greater Manchester. This is a relevant, informative and practical training – you will return to your desk/vehicle/role knowing what your personal carbon footprint is and with actions you can do to reduce it.
