How Much Waste Can I Add To My Worm Composter?

Volumes of Waste It will take a few months for the worms to make their first usable batch of worm compost , although everyday they will eat around half their own weight in food and produce worm casts which you will see as black dot in amongst the waste. Adding small amounts of food frequently is best and as the worms start breeding you can up the amounts. As a guide as long as you can see a few worms working in the top layer of waste – you can add more - there is NO need to wait until they have eaten the previous food.
