Home composting

Why compost?

When waste is sent to landfill air cannot get to the organic waste, so as the waste breaks down, it creates a harmful greenhouse gas called methane which damages the Earth's atmosphere. When organic waste is composted, oxygen helps the waste to decompose aerobically which means hardly any methane is produced - which is good news for the planet. What's more, after nine  to twelve months you get a free fertiliser for your garden and plant pots to keep them looking beautiful.
