What is bio-waste and composting?
It's everywhere and makes up on average almost 37% of most households' rubbish bins

Biowaste, or organic waste, is the leftovers from meal preparation and food scraps, such as fruit and vegetable peelings, coffee grounds and bread, among others. This waste, which also includes green garden waste, can be turned into compost or natural fertiliser through composting, avoiding landfill. Composting is a biological process by which microorganisms transform organic matter into a nutrient-rich, earth-like product called compost, which has value for agriculture and other applications.
