Composting

What is composting?

Composting involves collecting organic materials, such as kitchen and garden waste, and transforming them into a nutrient-rich food for plants. Bacteria in the compost heap transform scraps into a soil-like substance that can be used to help plants grow in your garden.

Why is it good for the environment?

A compost heap adds nutrients to soil, reduces the need for chemical fertilisers, produces helpful bacteria that break down organic waste and cuts greenhouse gas emissions from landfill sites.
