    Green Waste Compost: A Guide to Recycling Organic Waste

    | BY Ingrid
    Green Waste Compost

    Green waste compost is an organic matter that has been broken down and recycled as a soil amendment and a natural fertiliser. In this guide, we'll explore what makes it a gardener's gold and how it is an integral part of sustainable living. At Wastewise, where we excel in in-vessel composting, green waste compost transcends beyond being merely a product — it embodies our commitment to fostering a more sustainable future.

    What is Green Waste Compost?

    Green waste compost is the product of decomposed organic material, primarily derived from garden trimmings, leaves, branches, grass clippings, and other plant-based materials. It is a key element of organic gardening, acting as a soil conditioner, a fertiliser, and a natural pesticide for soil. The process of creating green waste compost is a natural way of recycling organic waste into a valuable resource for improving garden health.

    What are the benefits?

    Using green waste compost has numerous benefits:

    • Soil Improvement: It enriches the soil, improves its structure, and helps with water retention.
    • Nutrient-Rich: It is teeming with essential nutrients that plants need to thrive.
    • Eco-Friendly: It reduces the need for chemical fertilisers, which can be harmful to the environment.
    • Waste Reduction: Composting green waste significantly cuts down the amount of waste sent to landfills. Which would otherwise produce Methane 10x more potent than CO2.
    • Carbon sequestration – studies show up to 200kg of CO2 is locked away into stable carbon containing compounds for every tonne of green waste composted.

    The In-Vessel Composting edge

    Our in-vessel composting technique takes green waste recycling to the next level. In-vessel composting is an advanced and controlled method that accelerates the breakdown of organic material in an enclosed environment. This method offers numerous advantages:

    • Speed: The composting process is much faster compared to traditional methods.
    • Year-Round Operation: Our in-vessel composting systems function effectively in all weather conditions.
    • Control: We can closely monitor and control the composting environment, ensuring high-quality green waste compost.
    • Reduction in Odours and Pests: Being an enclosed system, it minimises odours and deters pests.

    How Does Green Waste Composting Work?

    The journey of green waste compost is an interesting one:

    • Collection: Green waste material is gathered from residential and commercial sources.
    • Processing: It's then shredded and prepared for composting.
    • Composting Phase: The green waste is placed into our in-vessel composting systems where microorganisms break it down.
    • Maturation: Finally, the compost is allowed to mature until it's ready to provide nutrition to new life.

    Using Green Waste Compost

    Green waste compost can be used in many ways:

    • In Gardens: Mix it into garden beds to boost plant health.
    • For Landscaping: It's ideal for preparing lawns and landscapes.
    • On Farms: It serves as a sustainable soil amendment for agriculture.
