Compost at home
Waste is now a valuable resource and composting at home is a great way to directly reap the benefits of your waste. Anyone can compost at home - you don’t need to be a keen gardener, have a big garden or even live in a house to make compost.
Why compost at home
If you recycle all your paper, bottles, tins, and so on, and feel you could do more to reduce your environmental impact, composting at home is a great next step. It reduces waste to landfill, reduces greenhouse gas creation and puts valuable nutrients back into the soil.
If you grow your own veg, have a garden or have houseplants, you can save money by getting a free soil conditioner to improve plant health and keep the soil moist, which reduces water consumption.
