1,000 tonnes of compost?

What does 1,000 tonnes of compost look like?

The Environment Agency carried out a survey at Southcroft Farm. The huge bunds (2-3 metres high, 4m base) extended 154m by 145 m in rectangular shape around the site.

Contained in these bunds were 855 tonnes of compost or 2850 cu metres.

Just 1,000 tonnes is an awful lot of compost!
