A SCHEME encouraging people across the county to be more eco-friendly by composting is set to be expanded.
Master Composters are community volunteers who, in return for training and support, act as composting ambassadors in their local neighbourhood and help raise awareness among the wider public of the benefits of composting.
There are already 11 volunteers but that is now due to expand due to their success.
The aim is to help the public successfully produce their own soil improvers, which will in turn help reduce the amount of organic waste going to landfill.
Lesley Cass, a newly trained master composter, said: “Having recently attended my master composter training I am more aware of the best composting practices and I am now better equipped to pass this experience on to others."
Cllr Eddy Alcock, responsible for environment and waste management at Suffolk County Council, said: “More than a third of the contents of the average household bin can be composted.”
