Community Composting

The Council has launched its own community composting scheme to support local community composting groups over a two-year period. 

  1. How does the scheme work?

    Different schemes use a range of methods. However, they tend to share some characteristics.

  2. Setting up a scheme

    Our checklist is a suggested approach to setting up a community composting scheme. You may need to swap the order of some tasks, or carry out different tasks at the same time.

  3. Available Support

    South Hams District Council is offering support for both new and existing community compost groups.
