Organic Recycling Tips

Council's collection is to assist householders to remove some, but probably not all green organics. Composting (or worm farming) your food scraps and "surplus" green organics is a great way of producing material suitable to go back into your garden. Compost has great water retention qualities and can only help to maintain your garden during Summer.
