What is composting?

Composting is a natural form of recycling that is constantly ongoing in nature.

Composting is the conversion of organic material (decay) into a soil-like material called compost. Insects, earth worms and micro-organisms (bacteria) interact under aerobic conditions and water content not higher than 55% in the conversion of organic material into compost. Composting is a natural form of recycling that is constantly ongoing in nature.

All organic materials will eventually be composted. The degradation rate depends on the following factors:

1. Carbon / nitrogen balance (C / N) in the organic material
2. Exposed surface (fraction)
3. Amount of available oxygen in the material
4. Water content
5. Temperature achieved in the compost
6. Ambient temperature
