The rubbish we throw away everyday is polluting our Earth. A lot of this rubbish comes from our gardens and kitchens and the good news is that this type of natural waste can be easily composted.  Composting is a natural process that involves controlling the decomposition (breakdown) of natural waste and recycling it into a valuable fertiliser for our gardens.

Compost is safe to handle as long as the usual garden hygiene rules are followed:

1. Keep cuts covered

2. Wash hands with soap and running water after handling compost (especially before eating)

3. Keep anti-tetanus protection up to date.
