A SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD

REQUIRES A TINY AMOUNT OF SPACE AND EFFORT

*****COMPOST***** In 2004-2005, 29.7 million tonnes of rubbish was produced by residents of England. That's a lot of baked bean cans and loo roll tubes! Almost ¾'s of this huuuuuge amount was disposed of in Landfill. Landfill is literally just that - great big holes in the ground where the...

“Wanna Get Dirty??”

Less household waste, encourages bugs into the gar...

Can get messy!

I am all for re-cycling and I believe that every household should try and do their bit to save the environment. I also believe that local councils make it much easier for us to do this.

“How To Compost”

published 10/07/2008

Great For The Environment

None

Anyone can compost, it's very easy and helps the environment. Tonnes of garden and kitchen waste are thrown away every year when it could be composted. You can buy lots of different compost bins, mine is a plastic one with a lid and a hole at the bottom with a sliding cover to get your compost...

Environmentally friendly and FUN

Takes up space, can attract flies (and worms)

I'd always liked the theory of recycling garden waste by making compost, but having a very small garden and a council who obligingly took everything you can fit in the bin, I never quite got round to it. Then last year, Runnymede council decided to start recycling, and along with the instructions...
