Why should I not place compostable packaging into my garden waste container?

Compostable packaging should not be placed into your garden waste container as it is not suitable for the open windrow composting process. Many forms of compostable packaging take longer than garden waste to break down. We would advise checking with the manufacturer if the packaging is suitable for home composting but please note that this could take some time, alternatively you can place such items into your general waste bin.
