Lidl’s new distribution centre in Wednesbury has donated more than two tonnes of compost to Sandwell Council which will be used at local parks and allotments.
Lidl intends to provide compost to Sandwell Council throughout the year to help keep parks and allotments looking attractive and kept well maintained.
Richard Cooper, recycling manager for Lidl’s new distribution centre in Wednesbury, said: “Part of my role is to manage the recycling of all store returns.
“This partnership with Sandwell Council will reduce waste at our facility and assist the parks department to improve their green spaces.”
Councillor Richard Marshall, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for leisure, said: “It’s brilliant that Lidl has donated this compost. This will help to keep our parks and green spaces looking great all year round.”
