A greener approach to leaf collections
Composting is becoming increasingly important as there are more and more restrictions being put on the amount of organic waste that can be sent to landfill.
This is because when organic waste rots down it gives off gases that are damaging to the atmosphere.
As a result, councils will be facing restrictions on the amount of material that can be landfilled in the future, making composting a necessary alternative.
Bath and North East Somerset Council offer residents a number of ways in which they can compost their waste as an alternative to disposal including compost bin offers and garden waste and cardboard collections.
