It is a great method of recycling organic waste from homes where kitchen waste is the main material to be composted, such as households with small gardens. Join us to discover how to introduce this resource into your garden.

Composting - The Alternative Methods

Most compostable kitchen and garden waste can be processed through a traditional compost heap or a worm bin. However it may be preferable to use different techniques to recycle specific types of kitchen and garden ‘waste’ such as autumn leaves, woody prunings and hedge clippings, food waste such as meat, dairy products and cooked food and some perennial weeds.
