Composting is a natural process that breaks down biodegradable material and returns the nutients to the soil. This can be contained to produce a soil improver that you can use on your garden. Look through the page below to find out how you can deal with your garden and kitchen waste.
Download our leaflets below for tips and advice on how to get the most from your compost.
