The easiest way to make a compost bin is to get hold of four pallets and tie them together to make a cube. You can always start with a pile in the corner of the garden until you can
find pallets. As well as food waste, (no meat products as that tends to attract rats) you need to add in grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves and weeds from the garden, avoiding things like woody rose cuttings, which take ages to rot down. Torn-up newspaper, cardboard and other waste paper can go in as well.
