Why compost?

There are environmental benefits to Composting:

  • It reduces the amount of waste in the household waste bin.

  • Organic waste such as grass, twigs and food produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas, when it breaks down in the absence of oxygen in landfill. This doesn't happen in a compost bin where material can biodegrade naturally.

  • Increases plant growth, health and improves soil structure.

If you cant compost in your garden you can either use your local council garden waste collection - some councils may charge,  or take your garden waste to a local Household Waste Recycling Centre - free of charge. 

You can even buy the finished compost back in small bags at some of the recycling centres.
