Food Digester

WHERE

You should site your food digester in a sunny spot if possible as this speeds up the digestive process. The basket part of the food digester should be buried underground to allow soil organisms to gain access to your food waste.

FEEDING YOUR FOOD DIGESTER

You can place the following items in a food digester:

  • Bones
  • Coffee grounds & tea bags / leaves
  • Cooked food waste
  • Dairy products
  • Fish & meat waste
  • Fruit & vegetable waste
  • Grass & leaves
  • Plants & plant clippings

Please do not place cat or dog waste in your food digester.

If you are having compost problems, please visit Dr Compost.
