Composting at Work...

We have a Lot of recycling bins at work, paper, plastic, card and tins, all looked after by the council, which is great.  But no composting.  The council here don't collect kitchen green waste and a lot of peelings and tea bags are going into the landfill bin at work.  I asked a few of my colleagues if they would use a compost bin if I provided one and they said they would, so I checked with my manager, who after I reassured her it wouldn't be smelly and dirty and I would take it home to empty at least twice a week, said if I bought a little kitchen waste bin we could have it in the staff kitchen.  After much googling I found a company called Garland who make compost caddies that ticked all the boxes on my checklist - made out of recycled plastic, has a handle for carrying home, has a lid that stays on.  It arrived today!  Tomorrow I shall have a grand unveiling at work and hope all my work buddies use it!


Do you recycle at work?

    1. Well, someone's got to do it! Compost bin went down well today, and already has teabags and banana skins in it!
