It is important that waste that can be composted, like food and organic materials, is disposed of properly rather than being sent to landfill, as waste in landfill produces harmful greenhouse gases. If you have a garden, setting up a compost heap or bin is a simple process. If you do not have a garden, you may still be able to get composting, through a small indoor composter – which can utilise either worms, organic matter, or electrical components to break down your food waste. To compost as much as possible, when buying disposable items make sure they are ‘home compostable’ not ‘biodegradable.’ Many items, such as compostable plastic free sponges are now widely available. Ask a neighbour with a garden, or a local allotment, if they would be able to take your food waste for composting.
