Composting for Cardiff

At the April Cardiff Friends of the Earth meeting David Moore of CSV Steaming Heap came to tell us about the wonders of making compost.

Every year each home in Wales produces about one tonne of rubbish. About a third of this is organic: grass cuttings; fruit and vegetable peelings; garden clippings; cardboard; tea bags; etc. Steaming Heap are a community composting project that aim to encourage people to convert this waste into useful garden compost instead of letting fester in a landfill site, producing the climate change gas methane.
