Composting

Questions

If I already compost at home should I stop?

Residents should not stop composting at home. Home composting is the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of compostable waste, and is an ideal way to make compost for the garden. However, it is not possible to compost, or some may choose not to compost all food waste items.

The food waste collection is ideal for anything you cannot or do not wish to compost at home e.g. cooked food, dairy, bread, pasta, meat, fish and bones.
