Ratproof composting

The aim of this is to widen the options for composting (meat and cooked food compost well, but general advice is not to compost them because they encourage rats). We are trialling 2 options for rat-proofing and seek volunteers who have a demonstrable rat problem in their compost bin! We have one slatted plastic bin available – free, but we would appreciate a donation towards our cost. We are also trialling a steel sleeve to go ver the standard “dalek” type bin (to make more of these we will need to buy materials, so before we go ahead we would like to know how much interest there is). Both types of bin need to be put on a rat-proof base, either concrete/paving slabs or steel mesh (we can help with this). Contact chair[at]transitonsouthampton[dot]org if intersted,
