Home Composting: A guide to getting started
Home composting is an easy, feel good activity that you can do in your own garden or even some of the smallest outside spaces. It is great for the environment as it diverts waste from landfill. What’s more, it produces a great peat free compost which can be used on flower beds and vegetable plots, for patio planters, hanging baskets and even window boxes. So, rather than disposing of your organic waste in your rubbish bin, why not start composting at home?
How to get started
It is easy to start composting at home. You can buy compost bins from Strabane District Council at a subsidised price of £5.00 which includes a compost bin, kitchen pail and full instructions.
What to compost
GREENS - Vegetable peelings, fruit waste, grass cuttings, green leaves, chopped up soft prunings, cut flowers.
BROWNS - Teabags, crushed eggshells, shredded hedge clippings, sawdust and wood shavings; fallen leaves; small bits of cardboard, shredded paper.
