Compost your organic waste.
Yard trimmings and food residuals together constitute 27% of the U.S. municipal solid waste stream. That’s a lot of waste to send to landfills when it could become useful and environmentally beneficial compost instead.
Composting is a rewarding and incredibly environmentally-friendly activity. You’ll be cutting down on your trash and creating your own organic and natural fertilizer for use in your garden, yard and plants. Compost helps enrich your soil, reduce pollution and clean up contaminated soil.
