Compost Collectors

The role and responsibility of the Composter Collectors

  • Collect the compost caddies from around the school and empty into the compost bins.
  • Emptying will need to be done weekly as a minimum; more often in the Foundation stage because of the snack tables. The frequency of collection may need to be altered according to need. I would suggest the emptying is done at lunchtime.
  • Check that the compost caddy only contains plant waste; fruit peels and skins, apple cores; leaves; flowers; plant stems and twigs, grass cuttings and weeds, tea bags and shredded paper (not glossy paper).
    Remember no cooked waste.
  • Ensure that fresh newspaper is put into the bottom of each caddie before returning to the class.
  • Make sure the lid is replaced onto the compost bin.
