What is community composting?
A community dealing with all its own garden and food waste, leading to less reliance on the brown bin collection service and retention of all organic matter in local soils.
This approach is at the ‘most desirable’ level on the waste management pyramid and has the least negative impact on the environment.
A HotBin in action...
..and the finished product
Waldringfield Community Composting received a Big Lottery grant in 2012. So far, we have supplied 30 Waldringfield households with Hotbins (several used by more than one household).
We have also supplied some households with bokashi bins and wormeries.
We provide buddying and on-going support with all composting glitches.
Some composting systems are used communally, with two or three households contributing their compost caddies to a fanatic with two hotbins! (Occasional buckets of compost in return!)
