Plastic packaging is the main contributor to plastic waste in our landfills and is responsible for almost half of the global total.

How to Compost at Home: A Guide to Getting Started

If you've received some sustainable packaging from a business and want to dispose of it correctly, then today's the day to start a compost!

The most important factor to consider before you create one is your living situation. If you live in a complex or apartment dwelling, an indoor set-up will be the best option.

Indoor composting is the simplest solution for those without a backyard (and without a green thumb) as you can purchase a special bins that sits in your kitchen, put your organic food waste in it and drop this waste off at a commercial facility or communal neighbourhood bin every 1 to 2 weeks.

Sticking to this timeline will reduce bad smells and the risk of pests or insects lingering.You can find a commercial facility near you through websites like Find a Composter.

Another option your city may offer is a compost collection service through their trash and recycling management, which provides a designated bin organic waste can go in. Check your local council's website to see what's available in your area.

Some forward-thinking cities are also starting compost collection sites at farmers markets, community gardens, and local farms. Similar to drop-off facilities, you can bring your scraps either in a reusable container or a compostable trash bag and dump them in the designated communal bin.

If your city doesn’t have these options available yet, then consider being the one to lead a new initiative. Talk to your landlord about starting a composting bin on your property or team up with a community garden, farm, or farmers markets in your area to start a composting site.

If you do have a backyard, then you can create an outdoor compost pile and repurpose the material back into your own soil – win, win!
