We ask that all residents #StayHomeSaveLives – see a Message from the Leader of the Council
- If I already compost at home should I stop?
- How can I find out about home composting?
- Can I get the compost produced from the food waste?
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.
Visit the Refuse & Recycling section of the Castle Point Borough Council website, and click on Home Composting for information on the benefits of composting and links to further information to help you get started.
Compost is currently unavailable for the public, and is being used only in the agricultural industry.
