Reduce Rubbish

Only buy things that you really need. Most of what we throw away could be used again. Think twice before you put something in the bin

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.
