Composting: Turn Your Table Scraps Into Garden Treasure


Composting your left over food scraps is a great way to help with rubbish clearance. Most left over foods can be used. Fruits and vegetables are great for composting but you should avoid things like meat or fish. These may attract unwanted pests. Some areas of the world are experimenting with specially designed receptacles to handle this problem as part of their rubbish removal. Composting helps reduce waste collection prices  as you will have less rubbish to dispose of.

Used coffee grinds as well as old tea bags can also be used, as can crushed egg shells. Composting left over table scraps can also take some of the pressure of your kitchen waste disposal units which you would otherwise use for rubbish removal  . These machines can be costly to purchase, use and maintain.

A good way to compost is to place your left over table scraps into a container or compost bin. Add some soil to it each time you place table scraps to it as this will help with any odours that may form as well as helping prevent things like fruit flies. Another way is to create a compost pile in your garden. This would be best suited to an area that is out of the way. Remember, rotting organic matter can produce a lot of heat, so it’s best not to place your compost anywhere that this may be a problem.

When you are ready to use the compost, always dig it into the soil of your garden beds. Hopefully the worms in your garden will help break down all of the waste quickly and easily. Once this is achieved, your soil will be much healthier as will be your garden.

So not only can composting table scraps add nutrients to your soil and your gardens, it’s a great way to help with rubbish and waste clearance .
