Get composting!

Happy International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW)! Here at Wanless, we love composting: there’s no other all-natural way that our rubbish can be disposed of, break down and actually help the environment – all by itself!

Every year, the happy recyclers at ICAW choose a theme; this year it’s Cool the Climate – Compost! You can check out the posters created by award-winning artists celebrating the event.

By composting, carbon captured by plants from the atmosphere is returned to the soil. In addition, the compost, when returned to the soil, provides resistance to drought and disease, adds nutrients, improve its workability and reduce the release of nitrous oxide.

And of course, should your organic waste exceed your composting needs – yep, we’re looking at you, cafe and restaurant owners – give us a call, and we can take care of the rest.
