Alternatives 

If you don't have a big enough garden for home composting, why not consider a Wormery instead? A Wormery is a home for tiger worms, that can turn cooked and uncooked food leftovers (plus things like toilet roll tubes, egg boxes and paper towels) into a rich compost and an excellent liquid feed.
