Composting is an inexpensive, natural process that transforms your kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden. It's easy to make and use.

Using a home compost bin diverts approximately 150 kilogrammes of waste per household away from landfill sites each year, and is an alternative to garden waste collections, with the added benefit of producing a supply of top

quality compost which will improve soil quality.  

More than 30% of the average household waste can be composted and home composting organic waste also helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

There are a range of compost bins and accessories available to suit new recruits and seasoned gardeners alike.
