Home composting is a great way to reduce waste and give your garden a treat at the same time. 

You can find out more about composting, including special offers on compost bins via the Leicestershire County Council's website.

Similar to a home composter, the Bokashi system will efficiently compost fruit and vegetable peelings and coffee grounds, as well as meat, fish and cooked foods.

The inexpensive system uses a unique mixture of bacteria, fungi and yeasts to safely home compost your kitchen food scraps, giving you an environmentally friendly alternative to waste. Visit the Bokashi website for more information.
