Carradale Community Trust (CCT) has secured the Seneval site for a Green Waste Management Scheme for the village.

Carradale Community Trust submitted an asset transfer request to purchase 1.8 hectares at Seneval Wood. The purpose of the request was to create a community garden waste composting site and a path with exercise areas to provide a link from the forest track to the path at the shore, making it possible to walk from the Network Centre to the shore, away from the road. 

Carradale Community Trust Report - Seneval (06/08/20)

The village composting project should soon be open for use. This project would not have been possible without digger time and hardcore being donated by SSE.

There will be eight bays at Seneval, comprising two rows of four. The rear four are hot boxes, which is where the compost will be nurtured. The front four will be clearly marked to take your garden waste in four categories: grass cuttings, hedge and mixed garden waste, wood cuttings and chipped wood.

We do not take cardboard or paper – it can be composted but really should be recycled through the normal systems as we cannot process it. The site will be under camera surveillance.

Every so often garden waste will be moved into the hot boxes by volunteers.

If you would like to assist please email

Thank you (14/09/19)

THANK YOU to the fifteen folk that turned out to help in clearing the ground at Seneval ready for the contractor to put in the Hard Standing and create the composting bays. We achieved our objective. The two surviving bonfires were fed later in the day and it has all gone.

Kintyre community receives Scottish Land Fund cash to develop village recycling facilities (13/02/19)

Carradale Community Community Trust receives £13,960 to buy 4.75 acres of Seneval Woodland in Carradale order to create a local recycling facility and improve access to surrounding woods

David Prag, Trustee, Carradale Community Trust said:The Scottish Land Fund has kick started our project to develop a garden composting site and footpath to the shore. Carradale is 15 miles from the nearest point to tip garden waste and this is via a difficult winding road. The footpath will join paths leading from one side of the village to the other making a pleasant walk to the shore and avoiding the road. We are very grateful to the The Scottish Land Fund for providing the funds to purchase the land for our two projects the first of which we aim to complete this summer.”

Trust is one of seven groups across Scotland sharing in £706,126 of Scottish Land Fund cash and Minister, Cabinet Secretary for Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham said of today’s grants: “Today marks an important milestone for the seven projects that have had funding approved by the Scottish Land Fund, enabling local residents to push on with their plans to acquire and develop vital local assets.
