Composting is a natural process. It happens when organic materials such as leaves, grass, and vegetable scraps are broken down by micro-organisms, forming a rich soil-like substance called compost. This is a valuable product and can be used to promote the growth of plants in your garden. By composting you are greatly reducing the amount of household waste you send to landfill.
If you have a garden, composting is easy. It takes up very little time and space - and it saves you money too. To find out more about all aspects of home composting and how to get started, download the booklet below.
