Composting Trial

The Town Council is testing a composting scheme to help fight food waste. Tackling food waste can be done effectively in the town and encouraging composting is just one way of doing it.

Our small pilot will see subscribers composting uncooked vegetable waste, such as peelings, seeds and cores. Other composting schemes will be considered in the future.

Our composting bins have been set up near the TerraCycle site close to the Youth & Community Centre.

Town Wardens regularly check the compost bins and add other materials to get the best mix for creating compost.

Wiltshire Council does not currently run a composting project, but will have to by 2023.
