For about 1 Euro the municipality will dispose of one plastic bag of household waste in a landfill. 30-35% of that can be saved by composting. Garden waste and food remnants make a wonderful rich compost that can be turned into fertilizer for your garden. The metamorphosis from waste into compost, takes from two months to as much as a year, depending on the method used. Still for those who have a small garden plot, composting is an enjoyable way of reducing waste and creating your own fertilizer.
