Compost Champions

Somerset has a team Compost Champions, volunteers from the Somerset community who kindly give up their spare time to attend community events, give talks and promote composting in any other way that occurs to them!

Somerset Compost ChampionsAlmost a third of the waste produced from Somerset’s households could be home composted – transforming food and garden waste into a great free fertiliser.

The Champions share their experience and skills to help residents to compost more of this waste, helping to reduce waste to landfill and save money.

Compost Champions have access to a range of resources and display materials to help them bring the message to life.

If you would like to invite a Compost Champion to attend your community event or know more about the scheme, please email enquiries@somersetwaste.gov.uk quoting Compost Champions in the subject line or call 01823 625700.
