Where can I get Rabbit 'waste'?

Sounds easy, but I'm having problems in finding someone who keeps Rabbits in North London who can let me have the used bedding, straw, and manure for my compost bin.   Any offers?

    Maybe ask if you can put a card up at a local pet shop or vet's practice?

  • Yes that did occur to me.  This morning I enquired at a local pet boading establishment but they're reply was exactly as I anticipated.  All their waste gets collected by a contractor but, in any case, Health & Safety prevents them from doing otherwise.

    Bl**dy Health & Safety!!

  • I've also posted requests on a few Freecycle groups but only received one response.  An aquaintance mentioned my request to her neighbour (who keeps Rabbits), and the neighbour actually saw one of my postings. But she didn't respond to it as she thought the post to be an odd request, thinking why would anyone want Rabbit waste.

    Try your local Streetlife.com  - it's a community website which facilitates people passing on things they don't need etc.

  • Dovefromabove:   I've never heard of the Streetlife site, thank you for the link.

    I've posted on it already.  image

    What do you use it for?

    In London. Keen but lazy.
