Composting in Benfleet

Here at Leigh Skip Hire, we believe that composting is excellent for your garden. If you are looking to start home composting, then take a look below at the information we have provided. You could help make Benfleet a cleaner, happier place by creating your own home compost.


There are many reasons to why you should start home composting, with some being:

  • Money saving – Don’t waste money buying compost for your garden! Use your kitchen waste by turning it into a free unlimited supply of compost!
  • Environmentally friendly – By using your own compost you are cutting CO2 emissions in the atmosphere, as it doesn’t need to be transported from place to place.
  • Staying fit – Just like any gardening, home composting keeps you fit meaning there is no reason to not do it. 


  • Oxygenate – This is a key factor of growing compost. The perfect way to do this is by mixing the compost, roughly once or twice a week.
  • Positioning – When deciding on a location to place the compost, you want to choose a sunny spot where there is bare soil.
