Hair - Pet / Human

What?

Hair clippings

Where?

Small amounts can be placed in the food waste recycling bin or home composting.

Why?

Hair is a good source of nitrogen which is good for compost. Make sure to spread out the hair so it will breakdown quicker.

General Comment / Tip

If you have a lot of hair perhaps you could find a charity to donate it to or hair could be used as a filler for plush toys.
