compost from brown bins

Angela Deegan asked 11 years ago

I recently got free compost in coolock recycling centre. I’m wondering how organic is compost from municipal brown bins? Should i only use it on ornamental plants and not on my vegetables?

It is impossible to know what exactly is in the municpal bins but the chances are that it is okay to use.

It probably would not pass strict organic certification as there is some uncertainty about origins.
