The NEC Directive covers four main air pollutants: sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and ammonia (NH3). These pollutants can cause respiratory problems, contribute to the acidification of soil and surface water, and damage vegetation.
Certain non-recyclable paper products (such as tissues, napkins, and egg cartons) can be added to your compost. Their fibres will aerate the compost and help the organisms that encourage decomposition.
