ABSTRACT
The article reports that European countries have developed programs that use compost as therapy. A community composting project is setting up demonstration sites across the continent to highlight the many benefits of sustainable waste management, specifically composting. Drug addicts at a rehabilitation center on the island of Salamina, of the coast of Athens, Greece and adults with learning difficulties at a care home south of Prague in Czech Republic have established composting projects as part of an initiative to set up community composting demonstration sites.
