This week Ireland’s Classic Hits Radio is looking at Home Composting.

Did you know….

Don’t forget….


When composting, it’s important to use the right waste:

Green stuff

(gives the compost nitrogen)

Brown stuff

(gives the compost carbon)

  • Fruit and vegetable peelings
  • Egg shells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Leftover food*
  • Fresh garden waste (grass, green leaves, flowers)
  • Shredded plain paper and cardboard (make sure it is not plastic coated)
  • Dead or dry leaves, grass
  • Twigs and dead plant stalks
  • Coconut husks
  • Sawdust
  • Cotton wool
