Home composting can produce a rich soil improver for your garden.
By composting, you can also help to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill.
Compost your kitchen (uncooked fruit and vegetables only) and garden waste by using a compost bin or by joining a local community composting scheme.
We have joined up with Straight Plc who will supply Lambeth residents with compost bins at reduced prices. To get your bin, or any of the other products, at the special offer prices you must be a Lambeth resident. Find out more about the special prices and how to order your compost bin.
Our Compost Doctor is available all year round to provide support and advice to all our composters. The Compost Doctor can visit you at home to help you to get started or solve any problems you may have.
Find out how to choose the right bin for you, the right spot to put your bin, what ingredients you can use for your compost and how long you need to wait until it is ready to use.
Once your bin is set up there is more you can do to help it along. Find out how to keep the right balance, what creepy crawlies are good for your compost, what to do if your bin is a bit smelly and how to harvest your compost.
