Climate and Home Composting Blog

Home composting reduces the energy needed to turn general waste into energy.

In Greater Manchester, the majority of general waste is burned and turned into energy, which is used for power in the Northwest. When plant matter and food waste is put into general waste, this raises moisture levels and results in more energy being used to turn the waste to get the energy. Composting at home or ensuring plant and food and garden waste goes into the correct bin, saves energy in the long run.
