What happens to food and garden waste?

Composting is the oldest form of recycling organic material. Composting is the biological process by which various micro-organisms break down this organic matter to create a substance that can then be used as a fertiliser and soil conditioner, helping new plants to grow.

Organic materials, such as food and garden waste, make up a significant part of household waste. Most organic materials can be composted.
