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.
Getting started is easy. Surrey residents can buy reduced price compost bins and food waste digesters at a reduced price during the regular flash sales that we’ll be running in 2021-22 – check our website and social media for details.
