How can we encourage green waste composting at home or community composting?

geoffmuskett - I wonder if you could do it the other way woolfini, and reward people for not putting much waste out each week. For green waste specifically, maybe giving out free compost bins?

HarrietDC - Free compost bins, more frequent recycling collections, and fewer general waste collections? Local composting sites for locals without gardens to use or a compost pick-up service?

Richard - As part of the Wyesham Community woodland project we have identified a need to have composting on site with primarily wood chips, as we work through thinning the woodland, this could be expanded into a communtiy composting area, with MCC's approval, but we would need to put in place something to prevent contamination and attracting vermin.

TheGreenEyedGirl - It's perhaps worth looking at how Combridge Compost operate, they collect food and green waste from homes and council green spaces (as far as I'm aware) then they can deliver it back to you as compost, only charging a delivery cost. I know of market gardens trialling it to improve soils. How it works financially for the company I'm not sure though.
