That youtube clip is very interesting, I love the fact that he is so passionate about composting; I would only query the names that he has given to the composting processes. What he initially talks about: shredded tree leaves, is a great way to speed up making 'leaf mould', which would otherwise take about 2 years in the chicken wire enclosure which I think he mentions. But he calls it 'compost'. What is commonly known as compost can be made in 5 or 6 months easily. But it is, of course, not just chucking kitchen waste into a bin, it is a proper, frequently turned mix of brown material and green, whether this is from the kitchen, flower or veg bed is not an issue.
The planet needs to compost, not incinerate or landfill. Lets get on with it; not grandstand about different processes.
