Composting and DIY Gardening

One of the easiest and most sustainable treatment of waste in the home is composting or vermi-composting (composting with worms!).

See our section on

Compost bins can be used to breakdown all of the green waste arising in your kitchen and garden

  • Fruit and Vegetable peelings
  • Garden clippings
  • Tea-bags
  • Egg shells and cardboard egg boxes
  • Bits of newspaper and cardboard

Layer the materials in your compost bin and wait about 6 - 12 months for your home made soil improver to arrive.  This should also cut down on your waste by approximately 30 – 35%.

Alternatively using tiger worms (vermi-composting) you can expand the range of materials which you can compost as the worms will also digest

  • Cooked foods
  • Pasta
  • Bread
  • Meat

Composters are available for sale at the Navan, Kells and Trim Recycling Centres for €35 which now includes a free Kitchen Caddy for your food waste.  Alternatively if you just require the kitchen caddy on it's own - this can be purchased for the value for money sum of €5. 

 

W.E.E.E and Batteries

Household WEEE & Batteries are accepted free of charge at our Civic Amenity facilities from members of the public.
