When starting out with your composter, you should fill the container with around 2 buckets full of active compost from another composter container or compost heap (normal soil will be fine too) so that the tiny organisms living there can immediately dig into your waste and multiply.
You can then fill your container with all the organic waste from your kitchen, home and garden. You shouldn’t fill the container in one go. Instead only fill with one day’s worth of organic waste at a time. Large volumes of leaves or grass cuttings may only be added gradually.
You can put the following in your compost: Fruit and vegetable waste, coffee grounds and teabags/tea leaves, egg shells (crushed), pot plants, cut flowers and used potting soil.
Avoid putting in: Meat, fish, food waste, bread, sausage, cheese, bones, diseased plants, ash, cigarettes, vacuum cleaner bags, litter, and drinks containers.
