Other Types of Composting

  • “Pot-holing” is burying food waste in small holes in the ground. Sometimes waste is placed at the bottom of the hole before new shrubs and trees are planted.
  • “Mulching” is a layer of organic matter spread on the top of the soil to protect the plants from drying out or being overgrown with weeds. Some councils chip branches and leaves to make mulch. It can then be used on gardens.
  • “Liquid fertiliser” is made by putting organic waste into a big container of water and leaving it to rot. The water becomes rich with nutrients and can be poured on plants.
