Community composting

community compostingWhat is community composting?

Community composting brings together local groups and individuals to enable them to produce compost from local green / food waste and distribute it back to their members.  Community compost sites are run on a not-for-profit basis.

What are the benefits of community composting?

  • Reduces biodegradable waste going to landfill or incineration
  • Turns a locally arising 'waste' problem into a locally available resource
  • Provides training, employment and volunteering opportunities as well as education and awareness raising
  • A more sustainable alternative to compost containing peat
