Composting

Composting is an easy and effective way to enrich your soil AND significantly reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill. It really is quite simple and extremely beneficial. Instead of throwing away yard waste and fruit and vegetable kitchen scraps, you can simply add them to a backyard compost bin. Give it a quick stir every now and then, and in anywhere from 1 to 5 months you’ll have a rich, robust soil amendment you can add to your gardens to help make them healthier. Rich in nutrients, compost acts as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, and a natural pesticide for soil.

 

Compost helps bind clusters of soil particles, called aggregates, which provide good soil structure. Such soil is full of tiny air channels & pores that hold air, moisture and nutrients.

  • Compost helps sandy soil retain water and nutrients.
  • Compost loosens tightly bound particles in clay or silt soil so roots can spread, water drain & air penetrate.
  • Compost alters soil structure, making it less likely to erode, and prevents soil spattering on plants—spreading disease.
  • Compost can hold nutrients tight enough to prevent them from washing out, but loosely enough so plants can take them up as needed.
  • Compost makes any soil easier to work.

Advantages of Biodegradable / Compostable Bioplastic Products

  • Using biodegradable and compostable plastic products such as (biowaste) bags and packaging or cutlery increases end-of-life options. In addition to recovering energy and mechanical recycling, composting (organic recovery / organic recycling) becomes an available waste management option.
  • This appears to be of particular benefit when plastic items are mixed with biowaste. Under these conditions, mechanical recycling is not feasible for either plastics or biowaste. The use of compostable plastics makes the mixed waste suitable for organic recycling, enabling the shift from recovery to recycling (a treatment option which is higher in the European waste hierarchy). An increased amount of biowaste is collected and then used to create valuable compost.
