Organic waste

Organic waste can be composted

The composting of organic waste is an excellent way to reduce the amount of household waste being thrown away, improve the soil structure, and add nutrients to the soil without the need for mineral fertilisers.

Fallen leaves, grass cuttings, chipped wood, vegetable peelings and food waste can all be composted.

Composting is an environmentally sound alternative to burning leaves and dry grass. Fires produce large amounts of harmful substances that pollute the air, which is why the burning of garden waste is prohibited in cities and villages.
