Composting for the Future

Composting for the Future is our flagship composting programme running throughout 2024 and 2025. It is a way for us to spark Glasgow’s communities’ involvement in composting and raising awareness of the importance of healthy soils for a healthy climate. Led by the Food and Climate Action project team, we want to work with our partners and communities to identify what needs to change with our city’s current food-waste recycling system, explore alternative models to make composting easier and more effective and support community groups to set these up.

We'll be delivering events across the city as well as sharing and creating materials on the ways and whys of composting.
