Reduce and reuse

Home composting

Composting is nature’s own way of recycling. It breaks down organic waste to make a resource which can be used in the garden.

Compost improves the soil and add nutrients. It helps grow strong, healthy plants which resist damage from pests and disease.

Much material from the garden, and uncooked kitchen waste, can be composted. Compost can be made almost everywhere, from back yards, to gardens, schools and even on a balcony. There are methods to fit every situation and techniques to fit a range of lifestyles.
