You can compost your garden and kitchen waste at home quite easily creating a high quality supplement for your garden. More than a quarter of your rubbish, including vegetable peelings, teabags and eggshells, can be composted. The result is a good soil conditioner for your garden.
The council provides information on composting and has negotiated low cost home composters, wormeries and food digesters with suppliers.
Council staff are also available to talk about recycling to schools and other groups if required.
