Home composting

The best thing to do with garden and food waste is compost it at home. Grass cuttings, dried leaves, twigs and vegetable peelings can be put into a compost bin or heap and will produce a nutrient-rich, peat-free compost that can be used to help gardens grow. Meat, fish, dairy, bones and cooked food waste cannot be added to a normal compost bin or heap. However, they can be composted using a food waste digester.

Surrey residents can buy a variety of exclusively discounted composting products including hot composters and food waste digesters all year round from Great Green Systems.

We also run regular sales of standard compost bins and hot composters. Please keep checking the buy a compost bin section of our website or follow us on social media for details.
