How to get a home compost bin

Composting is a natural process carried out by millions of tiny creatures, most of which are too small to be seen with the naked eye. These creatures include microscopic bugs, fungi, insects and worms which break down your compostable matter into a crumbly soil like material.

Composting turns what could have been rubbish into a useful product!

Composting helps the environment by:

  • Reducing the amount of rubbish thrown away
  • Reducing the need for chemical fertilisers
  • Reducing the number of car journeys to the tip
