Home composting is the most environmentally friendly way of dealing with kitchen and garden waste. It is really easy to start and produces a nutrient rich compost that you can use in your garden.

You can compost:

  • Grass cuttings
  • Soft prunings
  • Plants and some weeds
  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Egg shells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Old cut flowers
  • Cardboard (torn up)
  • Newspaper
  • Straw
