Composting is easy and worth the effort!

Did you know, by composting organic material produced at home, at work and at school you can divert up to 40% of your waste stream and contribute to reducing greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere? What’s more, the finished compost is a valuable resource that can improve soil ecology by returning nutrients to the earth.

When you learn about the simple steps to ensure a successful bin, composting is both practical and possible for everyone!
