Compost Bin


As an eco council we strongly believe in not wasting anything and therfore we throw fruit and vegetable waste into the compost bin . These are the items you could bring into the school to help us make compost ( we don't need any fruit or vegetable waste) :


* Egg boxes                             * newspaper and carboard                       * leaves


* Ash from the fireplace            * Hay                                                     * Eggshells


* Hair and nails clippings           * Small amount of grass cuttings               * sticks


* small amount of sheep wool.
