What a waste of energy.

Burying all of the goodness that kitchen scraps and organic material store, while farmers struggle to replace nutrients in their soil with fertilisers, is a complete waste.

Not only is it a waste, but organic matter - potato peelings, left-overs, apple cores, grass clippings etc - creates methane gas when it decomposes while buried in rubbish tips, otherwise known as landfill.

The City to Soil project uses age-old techniques of composting to create the world's best fertiliser for farmers' fields and solving the problem of organic waste in landfill.

Does your local council participate in the Groundswell City to Soil program?
