Compost The Composting Chronicle archive

Announcing the closure of the Rot-a-Lot home composting club.

The Rot-a-Lot club was a free home composting club for residents of Leicester and Leicestershire designed to help them get the best from their compost bins. It also included access to the Composting Chronicle, a newsletter containing tips and information to help readers compost successfully each season. The club ran successfully for many years, but in early 2020 we decided to close the club and to widen the scope of our newsletter to incorporate a wider range of topics relating to waste and the environment.

Our new newsletter ‘Environment Matters’ is published quarterly and it’s still free. You can access past editions and sign up to receive it in your inbox here:

The Composting Chronicle archive.

Although the Composting Chronicle has been retired, much of the content remains relevant to new and experienced composters. The archive below contains a wealth of tips and information to help you compost successfully each season.
