There are many benefits to home composting.

  • Lower volumes of household waste due to the appropriate organic materials being composted instead which is beneficial to the environment
  • No journeys to the tip to dispose of green waste such as cuttings, prunings etc
  • Your compost can be used as mulch to provide nutrients and lock in moisture reducing water usage for the household
  • Save money by not having to purchase compost from the local garden centre.
