There are no hidden secrets when it comes to composting organic waste. It is simply a case of layering organic waste with the aim of breaking down the organic material with the aid of microorganisms in the presence of oxygen. The end product is known as compost. Compost is a valuable soil improver for your garden. The benefit of high-quality compost has been scientifically proven. Unlike simply adding mineral fertilisers, compost retains and improves the soil fertility. Another positive result of composting at home is that it can reduce your household waste by up to 30%. Composting at home is a way of actively protecting the environment.
