What is Composting?

Composting is a natural process by which any organic material, such as food waste or lawn trimmings, is broken down by naturally occurring bacteria and fungus in the soil to form compost.1 The resulting materials—compost—is a nutrient-rich soil amendment that looks a lot like soil itself.

What is a Compost Bin?

Compost bins are containers where you can place wet or dry food, yard scraps, and other compostable materials you want to make into compost. A compost bin can help improve the rate of decomposition by providing sufficient moisture and aeration. 

What is the benefit of Compost Bins?

Composting at home is a safe way to help reduce waste in landfills while making organic fertiliser. Compost provides numerous benefits not only to soil and plants, but also to the environment.
