Composting is the natural process of decomposition that turns organic materials like garden waste and vegetable food scraps into a dark, crumbly and earthy smelling material called compost. Compost is rich in nutrients and is great for your garden, shrubs or even indoor potted plants.
Home Compost Bins are available from Wexford County Council at a cost of €25.00. Capacity 330 Litre, Height 1000 mm, Diameter 800 mm
The Kitchen Caddie is ideal for the collection of kitchen waste prior to transferring it to your compost bin/home composting pile and are available in two sizes - small €4.00 and large €8.00.
Both Compost Bins and Kitchen Caddies can be paid for at any of the following offices, then collected (with proof of purchase i.e. your receipt) from any of the four Household Recycling Centres listed below.
