I have just come across Martina’s Three Part Guide to Composting over on the Recycle for Aberdeen blog. Martina provides a very useful beginner’s guide to the hows and whys of composting.

Part 1 covers the benefits of composting and suitable compost bins.

Part 2 deals with how to feed your compost bin with the right balance of ingredients, combining Green/Wet and Brown/Dry materials.

Part 3 tells you when and how to use your compost and offers a troubleshooting guide if things go wrong.

Composting our green and brown waste is a great way of getting a soil improver free and helps us do our bit to make Aberdeen a little greener by cutting the use of landfill.
