Should I put weeds on my compost heap? Normally I dump my weeds and the council turns them into compost I appreciate they process all the dump material but is that any different from my rotting.
I have three compost heaps made from pallets. The pallets are great as they are free, provide enough ventilation and when they rot are easily replaced. I let the material rot down for about 1 year. They generate considerable heat would they rot down weeds without the risk of them growing again when the compost is distributed. I suspect that weeds containing seed are a definite no go.
