Composting is a very direct and important way of recycling the biodegradable fraction of waste.

An estimated 35% of household waste can be composted. Composting is a natural process that converts organic materials into compost (or, alternatively, humus or soil conditioner).

Household composting is an effective way to reduce organic kitchen waste (food scraps, paper towels, indoor plant cuttings, etc.) and garden waste (plant trimmings, grass, etc.) by 70 to 80 percent. The household composting process includes the use of special bins/composters at homes and apartment blocks and on balconies.

Organic kitchen waste is place in them and converted into very good-quality fertiliser/compost that can be used in the household itself, in the garden, in flowerpots, etc.

Compost is produced through the decomposition of organic materials, is of very high quality, and can be used in any kind of cultivation.
