Rotters Composting is a not-for-profit community project, collecting loads of rich green waste from your kerbside and processing it responsibly into a fertile and eco-friendly soil improver for the use of the people of Teesdale.

Starting two decades ago with a small collection round accomplished by volunteers and modified milk floats, we now serve over 5,000 households across the dale.
