Household Compost Scheme 2013

The Household Compost Scheme has been designed to increase, to mobilize and to encourage participation of all the Mauritian population in environmental conservation and management so as to mitigate the serious adverse deterioration of environmental resources. At the heart of the Maurice Ile Durable Strategy is the principle that reducing the amount of waste we produce is better than recycling and recycling is better than disposal. The new strategy makes a priority of work that will either reduce the amount of waste we produce or encourage people to reuse materials rather than throw them away. We need to minimize the amount that we throw away and find alternatives to sending waste to landfill.
