Composting Tips

Whether it's done in your backyard, apartment or in a large-scale, centralized facility, composting helps to keep organic material out of landfills. Composting at home is an economical and convenient alternative to give your yard and food debris a second life. It is “natural” recycling at its best, using waste and transforming it into a quality product you can use to cultivate healthier plants, improve your soil, and decrease your impact on the environment.

Natural composting, or biological decomposition, began with the first plants on earth and has been going on ever since.
Of the material thrown out in the United States, yard waste makes up 13.2% and food scraps 12.7%.
Using compost can reduce the need for water, fertilizers, and pesticides.
Composting can be an active or fairly casual process.
